age of death

death record #337 for Pasquale Rizzo.

I rad the age of death as 'di anni undici, mese cinque' - is this accurate? i have never seen a death record that records age in both years and months.

thanks,
donna

it says "di anni undici e mesi cinque"-so you have it correct except that you omitted the "e" for "and"

the word "mese" is in the plural "mesi"

in one of my ancestral towns, they give the age at death in years, months, and days
