    What does "PB" stand for, in 19th century burial records?

    Beatriz Collazo Newbie

      In daily 19th century burial ledgers, we have found the abbreviation "PB" in the age column. Does anyone know what it means? The possibilities we have found so far are: private baptism, and perished at Birth.

       

      We have also found "SB," which we believe means still born.

       

      Thank you!
