The part 'di anni' was printed as part of the official document, do you mean that the perosn who filled in the information could also have written 'anni' again before writing 'otto' ? If it is indeed 8 years then when I go back to the FHC I should be able to find the birth Act in the year 1854 and I still have that film. Problem here is I dont recall seeing any other births with the Difilippis surname but I will check the Death Act and check for a Birth Act when I go back.
The FHC is closed next week so I wont get this checked out for at least 3 weeks- my daughter, son-in-law and grandchildren are coming from France next week for a holiday. Looking forward to this.
Hi nonna Joyce
Got your pm. Its ok about the link it wont matter about posting it again bcause when I go back to FHC I'm going to try to get a better copy,
but many thanks for offering to post it again. That was great that Mark found out that information for me, I was right in thinking that the two different addresses was the same place and it really confirms that my grandfather and his brother and their families lived in the same house. Thanks again for putting me in touch with mahart.
Love and hugs xx
ps Its still VERY hot here, wish it would rain soon.
I've been back at the FHC today and on the death Notice for Giovanni Antonio at the end it has printed di anni, then handwritten it looks like miesi otto/mesi otto so I take it this means he was 8 months old when he died, but my grandfathers brother would have been 9months old at that date. Could they be a month out? Or would they only count the complete months when filling out the form?
