Just curious if anyone knows!
For example, my great grandfathers and great great grandfather during the mid to 1800's. Just wondering what their occupations might have been when they lived in a town or village (Petrulo, Calvi Risorta). I know I've come across possidente numerous times, but I am guessing that does not mean they were wealthy landowners, just that they may have owned their own homes.
I wonder if there is any way to find this out?
