Post by dmt1955 » 13 Oct 2016, 03:04

2nd line: "....come della fede esibita" - is that what is written and what does this translate to, please.

this is from a marriage record.

thanks,
donna

Hi Donna

Yes, that is what I am reading also. I think what it means is that the information about who he was, was taken in faith?????? I'm not 100% though. I had similar, but not exact, wording in one of my records once. Maybe someone else can confirm/negate.

"...come dalla fede esibita" = "...come dal certificato esibito" = "...as in the certificate shown"

Thank you, Livio. A new phrase for me to remember. It would've been easier if they had just said "come dal certificato esibito". :?

Angela, you are correct, however if the document's heading is "fede di nascita" you cannot say "come dal certificato esibito", you have to say "come dalla fede esibita".
See, for example, http://liviomoreno.altervista.org/Genea ... inuzzi.jpg

Livio: I understand, so: fede is feminine and certificate is male

La fede = the faith (in this case an attestaton?)
dalla fede = from the faith

il certificato = the certificate
dal certificato = from the certificate

Donna: You obviously catch on much quicker than me. It's taken me a while to get there. :wink:
