how maternal death is recorded

Post by dmt1955 » 15 Jul 2012, 01:44

if a child is stillborn, it is recorded on the birth record as "nata morto".

if the mother dies in childbirth, would that be recorded on the birth record also?

If the mother dies in childbirth the death would be recorded on HER birth record, not that of the child. The notation of deaths on birth records varies depending on the year the death took place. You are more likely to find it on birth records after 1870.
