Pronati, Burk. Crenshaw, Alabama

Postby Seraphina » 12 Jul 2010, 06:33

After initially deciding Burk Pronati must be a mis-spelling, I now think I should at least find out as much as I can about him, just to make sure one way or the other.

However, the only information I can find is the 1920 census, giving his birth in 1888 in Bradleyton Township, Crenshaw - and his wife and daughter.

Can anyone help with any other info about him, like the name of his parents etc?

Any info would be very much appreciated.

I agree, Suanj. I thought it must be a mis-print or mis-spelling.
The other surnames of the people in the household are all spelled differently, so I think Prouate or Provate is probably the correct name.

I won't pursue this any further.

Thanks for your assistance, Suanj.
