(v) following a name in a Mexican birth certificate

< Previous | Next >


United States/ English

I am translating a birth certificate from Coahuila, Mexico. Where the grandparents' names are listed, each of the four names are followed by "(v)". Does anyone know what this stands for? I thought maybe "viudo/a," but this doesn't make sense given that it follows all of the four names. Could it stand for some word meaning deceased? I haven't seen this before.

It looks like this: NOMBRE JUAN MARTINEZ (v)

Thanks in advance for your help!
