Meaning of "selbst" in Galician Death Records #galicia

William Kaufman <billkauf@...>

In early 19th century Galician death records the column for
recording the name of decedent's father often contains the word that
appears to be "selbss" or "selbst". Does this mean that the decedent
appeared himself (or herself) with no one able to inform who the
father was?
