Meaning of "Mastro"

Postby rp76226 » 18 Apr 2015, 22:27

Some of my marriage records have "Mastro" before the groom's name and also the groom's father's name. Mastro translates to "Master" What does that indicate?

Maestro is often defined as "master" - someone who is very skilled at his work

Could also refer to a teacher :-)
