Law/Patents
Spanish term or phrase: c. oficial
This occupation appears on a marriage certificate in the phrase ' el c. oficial 08 del registro civil.'

Does anybody know what the 'c' stands for? I'm fairly certain that 'oficial' is a clerk.

Thanks.

ciudadano
Explanation:
C. for ciudadano is standard for Government officials in Mexico. I wouldn't normally translate it. Oficial could be clerk or registrar

Explanation:
Could be "town official" - that's what that word above means....

Or something to do with "cabeza" as in head official. You've got your work cut-out without much more context.

Couldn't be "ciudad" or connected with the name of the town or something, could it?

One would expect capitals for that though, I suppose.

Hope this at least inspires you on to the better answer :-)
