Need Death Record Info in Latin Verified

Post by oemorg » 17 Jan 2014, 18:57

Pasquale Micieli, husband of Felicia Iorio, died at age 68 on 27 Oct 1799.

Is this correct? Any other useful info?

Thanks,
Greg

The record reads his was about or around age 68. Look at the abbreviation which appears after the number 68 with the letter up in the air. It is an abbreviation for the Latin word circiter

the record also states that he was of this town-S. Lucido.

Erudita,
Thanks for the lesson. I always learn something from you. I noticed on some Italian death records they used the word "circa". They don't really have to because age is usually inaccurate anyway.

You're welcome, Greg. You're doing well extracting the vital info from these church records. And, yes, age was often more of an estimate than an accurate number, even in the civil records.
