spinning my wheels!

Postby misschristi16 » 17 Feb 2011, 00:29

I am printing off microfilm data from the family search office. There are so many palmieri's, and all I really know at this moment is my grandfathers name, his fathers name and his mothers name. Well, the comune also.

So, since the films are rented, I print every name that could be them. i just figure that when I find out my great grandfather's-father's name, then, I can just go back to all my printouts.

Anyhow. I found these few records of people that i know have the same name.
Can anyone help me translate. I have asked before, and am keeping good records. But, I have absolutely no knowledge of the language or dialect.

I really appreciate all the help everyone gives me.

Also, I have a question--there is so much writing on some of these documents:

Here is my question--there is a spot on the document that reads:
provincia de terra di lavore, e compars ______________________(name) figli di ____________

What is that name in that section for? Is that the father? If so, I found a boatload of one name listed on like--every document on one comune today. I think he/she was listed on 6 out of 10 in a row. Maybe there are just many people with that name. But, it was Palmieri, so I am confused.

I guess I need a lesson, also, in Italian documents. I am printing of a bunch of info someone gave me earlier about record extraction from Italy, as we speak. Hopefully, I will be learning a bunch from that.

It feels like I am in school all over again! Yikes!

Here is the link to the documents. Thank you so much for all your help!

In the first record, Antonio was the son of deceased Nicola. He was a bracciale or farmhand/day laborer and was 37.

In the second, Francesco was the son of deceased Mattia (although the last letter does not look like an a). He was 36 and a field worker, as Marty stated.
