Did I translate this correctly? Any more information?

I think I got this record right, but I would like another set of eyes. 

I believe it is for a child that died in Switzerland. Probably was born in Switzerland as well as I do not see his birth record.

Hello Lance,

First, it looks like the citation above differs from the citation that  is posted on Giovanni Martinucci's Profile. When I clicked on the above link it takes me to a Civil Registration that lists Surnames and Given Names; however there is no Giovanni Martinucci listed.

Then I went to the Profile an clicked on the FamilySearch record that took me to an Attestation of Death for Giovanni Martinucci. I am not fluent in Italian. I read and speak Spanish fairly well. The dates you listed look consistent.

Here is what I would recommend, though. I would not just end this profile with a name, birth and death date. This profile really needs a biography with some information. I would find a Wikitreer who is fluent in Italian and at least translated the paragraph that is written about Giovanni even if he only lived for 2 years. This translations could possibly lead to other information about his family, his cause of death, etc.

There are wonderful Wikitreers who are fluent in Italian and I am sure one of them would help add to this profile and make sure that you information is correct.

Thanks for catching my mistake Carol. The point of my project is simply to transcribe the information in the records, not develop profiles. The records have never been translated that I am aware of so this is the first pass through to make the information searchable. If you would like to help you can find the project here.
