Meaning of lo Vecchio [luh-VEH-kyu]: the old one

      Civil records of births were not kept before 1820.  Below is the baptismal record of my maternal great-great-great-grandmother Giuseppa lo Vecchio, from the Chiesa San Leonardo Abate in Serradifalco.


Baptism Record

From Serradifalco Registri Ecclesiastici Film 2012918, 1786 Baptisms, Page 202, lo Vecchio Josepha

   Ego Sactus Cataldus Palermo Cap. Sactis baptizavam infante hac nocte nata ex Amodeo et Calogera,
jugbus. Cui imposita f: nomen Josepha P.P Bartolus et Anna Digraci, jugbus.


lo Vecchio}  day 15 October 1786
   I Priest Cataldo Palermo Holy Chaplain baptized an infant born this night to Amodeo and Calogera, man and wife.  The name given her is Giuseppa. The godparents were Bartolo Digraci and Anna, married.

      Civil records of deaths normally gave no cause of death.  Two witnesses or declarants went to the Town Hall to report the death, and the official then accompanied them to the home of the deceased.  One of the witnesses in this case was Gaetano Coniglio, age 26.  Gaetano was not related to Giuseppa lo Vecchio, and had no way of knowing it, but she would be my GG-grandmother on the Alessi side, and he was my grandfather on the Coniglio side!
