Potential case: Sofía Román (Dominican Republic, age 111)

There's a woman in the Dominican Republic who is reportedly 111 years old (will turn 112 in November 2018). Her name is Sofía Román, from Gurabo in Santiago Province.

There are several videos online about her, when she was aged 105, 107 and 110, describing how is her life as a centenarian farmer.

I've received confirmation from people of her hometown that she is still alive. Since, so far, there are no Dominicans validated by the GRG as supercentenarians, she would be the first one if confirmed, which has encouraged me to join this forum to know what steps should be done to validate her longevity, what should her relatives and/or acquaintances provide, etc.

Hi iB4, welcome to the forum.

For the validation process, please contact Mr Robert Young - ryoung122@yahoo.com - to see what is necessary. Usually, the GRG requires a minimum of three documents to complete the validation process: original proof of birth (such as a copy of an original birth or baptismal certificate), proof of name change (such as a copy of a marriage certificate or a child's birth certificate), and a copy of a recent ID / passport.

Good luck! :)
