    Hello,

    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!

    Could it mean "verificado"? verified?

    Thank you, I think Vivo/Vive makes perfect sense. Happy Holidays!
