Professions in 1860, Southern Italy

Postby jamiecapaldi » 14 Jul 2010, 06:37

I have been looking at the LDS Birth records of San Germano (cassino), between 1857-1864. I have come across a few Professions, but did not find the Profession i thought i would see the most of!
I have been searching for Capaldi's and on a lot of UK Certificates it has shown alot of the Family as Musicians, but i could not find one.

I found these Professions:

This is how i seen it:

I think they should be:
Bracciante - Labourer
Contadino - Farmer
Militarne - Military

Can someone please put me right?
NAMES: Capaldi-Tedesco-Tamilio-Minchella-Verrecchia-Tomasso-Franchitto-Innelli-Arpino-Caringi-Colacicco-Macari-Pinchera-Salera-D'Orazio-Ambrosino-Di Mambro-Sigliocolo-Masello
PLACES: Cassino- UK, USA, Ireland, Canada & Australia

i think you are right. I don't know the word "bricciali" and i think it was "bracciante = farm hand".

good luck.
I'm searching lost relatives and descendant of my greatgrandfather Vincenzo Genualdi (or Gennaldi or Genuardi) and my greatgrandmother Concetta Davola (their sons: Angela, Carmela, Antonio, Bartolomeo, Ernesto, Simone, Riccardo, Maria) went in Chicago,Ill., and New Orleans, in 1880-1920 from Sicily. Other family related : Jacobucci or Jacopucci (from Central Italy).

I think you may find that a lot of the italians became street musicians,organ grinders & ice cream vendors when they got to England. Some where brought over on the Pardrone system to do these jobs see section about padrone & ice cream sellers on it might help.
