    Default Latin abreviations

    8 Apr 1663 Joseph Sands fil. Samuell ibm

    Hello Scribes,

    Can anyone help me with what looks like a Latin abreviation,its a burial entry,and its the ibm at the end which is a problem.

    A thought did flash through my mind....................but no,no electricity in 1663
    we won't go there.

    Any thoughts would be apreciated.

    Hi Dave,

    Latin and I were never best buddies, but could it be an abbreviation for ibidem, meaning "in the same place"?

    Depending on its position in relation to the other words in the entry, perhaps ibidem, meaning in the same place ?


    Ooh Jan you're so quick

    Default Latin

    Hello Cradley,sorry about the confusion,I do not have a Sands in my tree,the Sands i was quoting was from the Parish register i am transcribing for FreeReg.

    I didn't make that clear.

    Best wishes
