I agree with Marcello that the occupation is pastaro, pasta maker, sometimes written in the Sicilian records as pastaio. I have Sicilian ancestry with this occupation.

I also thought it was "Pasta maker" but I checked on rootsweb http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.anc ... gitoc.html

Livio
I think that definition on the occupation list is incorrect.

Here are some references, but I'm finding others-

Thanks for all your help. My father left me an Italian to English dictionary. Pastore is a shepherd and pastora is a shepherdess. It does not have pastaro listed. Google translate does not recognize pastaro either.

You will get many hits for pastaro (singular) or pastari (plural,) if you search the occupation on the Italian search engine

http://www.virgilio.it/

You can even narrow down your search to Italian sites only.

Also you will see the occupation, if you search pastaro/pastaio
