Many Thanks Carole
I've been thinking (smell the smoke
Maybe I should check again and see if I have made a mistake copying the words down if its 19
53 then the other dates with 53 will probably be 19
as well and not 1853 as I thought.
I think I'll need to try to take a photograph of the document to study it at home
If it does say milleotto
cento that would be 1853
Do you think its more likely to be the correct information that has the heading 'Atto di Matrimonio' where it gives the date as 1861?
I had a similar problem with the birth acts. when the son was born in 1831 his parents ages were Father- ventotto(28) mother- ventnova (29) but when the daughter was born in 1834 Father's age was quaranta (40) and mother's age quarantauna 41? Wonder if its meant to be 30 and 31?
Thanks again Carole
