#1: Birth Act Question Author: Emmy, Location: ScotlandPosted: Wed Apr 23, 2008 1:00 pm ---- Near the beginning of the birth act where the father's name is first mentioned, then just after that it usually gives the name of the child's grandfather.
But is it still the name of the child's grandfather that's given if its NOT the child's father's name before it.
Say e.g if it was the midwife's name that was in the place where the father's name should be then does the part that follows i.e 'figlio di/fu ------------
Does this name refer to the father of the midwife or is it the child's grandfather?
I'm really getting myself confused over this.
Be grateful for any suggestions

I was just using the midwife's name as an example but say eg it was another man's name that was there, not the father's name, and it said figlio di/fu after that name would it be referring to the person whose name had been written just before 'figlio di/fu' or would it be the child's grandfather's name?

If a father's name is given, fu or di, then it refers to the person named. So, if its the midwife, then its her father, if its the father then its his father and so on.
