Event in Repedea Romania November 17, 1884 #romania


Robin Schwartz
 

I just came across records of the deaths of two toddlers in the Worem (Vurm) family in Repedea, Romania ages 2 1/2 and 4 1/2 both occurring on November 17, 1884.  Although it is possible there was some family accident or perhaps (although unlikely) an illness that took them both on the same day, I am wondering if there was an "event" in the town that led to their deaths.  Any ideas on how to pursue this?
Thank you

There are two villages with that name, one in Maramures and other in Vrancea. You can write to the Natinal Archive office in Baia Mare  or in Piatra Neamt and request copy of the death record. I doubt there was " an event".

Robin,

It is totally possible that both children passed on the same day from the same illness.

Many children were lost in childhood.  On the 1900 and 1910 U.S. census each married woman was asked how many children she had given birth to and how many were living.  The numbers of children lost (especially of some foreign born) were shockingly high.

An accident involving both children is also possible.  Candles started fires, farming equipment was dangerous to be around, etc.

Unless the records indicate a cause of death than you may never know with certainty what happened.
