Missing Marineo, Sicilly Death Records
Missing Marineo, Sicilly Death Records for years 1887>1888>1889, the scans are missing for those years ??? 😪
Are they availble at a Family Center to view.
If the records you are referring to are the ones you thought were available on the film highlighted below, it seems highly unlikely. The Catalog shows the whole period should be on this film and is available to view from home. If you are sure the deaths for these years are not on this film it is possibly a Catalog error involved - or the pages have been accidentally missed, Attendance at a Family History Centre should make no difference to their availability.0
I just had a quick look at the headings for the different items included on this film and they all appear to be for marriage records. You could try looking at other films in the collection to see if the catalog details are wrong and the deaths are to be found elsewhere. Otherwise, it could be that only marriage records have been indexed on these films, in spite of the suggestion otherwise.0
Is there a way to confirm that in those 3 consecutive years 1887/8/9 Death records were either lost,damaged, or unable to be included.
Thank you, Nicholas0
I think he's actually talking about film 7101152, which is apparently arranged first by year, then by type. Each year gets an item number, with corresponding bookmark images; part 10 is 1887, 11 is 1888, and 12 is 1889.
Within each item, the types are normally in the order births, publications of marriage (banns), marriages, naturalizations, and deaths.
Part 10 (1887) has births, marriages, and naturalizations.
Part 11 (1888) has just marriages and naturalizations.
Part 12 (1889) has publications, marriages, and naturalizations.
All we can tell from this is that the deaths (and births for 1888-89) are not on this film. They may exist somewhere; the person who made the filming bookmarks certainly expected them to be filmed, and the person who wrote the catalog entry followed the bookmarks. It's just that the camera operator apparently missed these records for some reason: they could have gotten put in the wrong pile, or fallen behind the shelf, or who knows what else.
Film 7102262 has the attachments to marriages for 1886 (part 2) to 1889 (part 5). Poking at them at random, I saw things like birth register extracts and requests for banns (and a whole lot of Italian that I couldn't decipher enough to figure out even a date -- I mean, would it have killed them to write down a numeral once in a while?).
I don't know anything about Italian or Sicilian recordkeeping, so unfortunately I can't offer any suggestions on how to track down the missing records.0
