[Malte] Questions on legacies and marriage dowries
Hello all,

I have a few questions regarding legacies and marriage dowries in Malta. Has anyone on this forum had experience with legacies issues by the Curia?

I just want to ask, what is the process like? How does the Curia decide to distribute the legacies of a particular person and do they provide any documents that could identify the ancestor who created the legacy?

Of course, I have sent all these questions to the Curia and am awaiting their reply. In the meantime, since I am curious about the process itself, if anyone can share some general information on what legacies are and how they work, it would be much appreciated!

Thanks in advance.

Interesting questions.

I can show an example.
In Acta Originalia of the Magna Curia (available online), we can found "Inventories".

The first one is the « Inventorio dell’Eredita di Arcangelo MELLIOPATI » in 1553.

In attachement, I add the 41 pages of the inventory.

On it, we have the list of the children, I read Francesco, Leonora, Clarissa, Michele. Only Michele is an adult.
So we can found few pages later, that Manfredo MELLIOPATI, brother of Arcangelo had been the tutors of the 3 teenagers.

After that, 36 pages listing the inventory.


By "legacies", you mean Beneficio / Gius Padronato ?

There is many transcriptions in the volumes 60 to 83 in Adami Collection
And Adami used them to create trees. 
I add an example :

So yes, I supposed they had to provide some proof like birth certificate, ...
