S. Agata?

Post by Robin B Mc » 11 Feb 2015, 21:24

This birth record of my ancestor in Solmona says his mother was living in S. Agata:

I've Googled it and get results for more than one place that starts with Sant'Agata. Any idea if this is the same as S. Agata and if so, which Sant'Agata was meant on the birth record?

Also, why would the mother be living in one place while the birth was recorded in another place?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Robin!
I think Sant'Agata means the parish, as it is written that the mother lives in Sant'Agata, and the father in the same parish.
Sant'Agata is still one of the parishes of Sulmona (modern spelling of Solmona). The child was baptized in San Panfilo, the cathedral
