Are death records in maiden names?

Postby misschristi16 » 03 Mar 2014, 23:21

I read once that most italian records are done with their maiden name. So, I was wondering, if I am searching for my ggrandmother-- Maria Di Paola who married Pietro Pinto, would her death record be in her Di Paola name or Pinto name?

Thanks!

She'd be under Di Paola in her death record. Italian women retained the surname of their fathers or what we in the U.S. refer to as a "maiden name."

That helps alot. Thanks. All this time I was wondering, but did not know for sure.
Does it mention in the death record the name of their spouse?

You just never know what info you will get until you find the record. It should mention the name of the last spouse,if there was more than one. Occasionally you get the names of all spouses and all surviving children, but I've only seen the names of surviving children in a handful of records.
