(ANSA) - Rome August 20 - With a big sister of 105 years,
and the baby at 78 years old, the siblings of the Melis family
are entering the Guinness World Records book for family
longevity.
The Sardinian family's combined age of 818 years and 205
days (as of June 1, 2012) makes it a world record holder and a
legend in the community of Perdasdefogu, according to local
media outlet La Nuova Sardegna.
Still, it took the record researchers seven years of
careful research across five continents to confirm the findings.
Eldest is Consolata Melis, who turns 105 years on
Wednesday, followed by 99-year-old Claudia, who was seen Sunday
in the front row at morning Mass in the parish of St. Peter.
Next is Maria, at 97; Antonio at 93; Concetta aged 91;
while 89-year-old Adolfo still works in a local bar.
Other siblings include Vitalia, 81, who lives in Cagliari,
as does the youngest in the family, 78-year-old Mafalda.
According to the local newspaper, the eldest sibling
Consolata claims to be happiest because she is surrounded by
nine children, 24 grandchildren, and 25 great-grandchildren.
