Photo Captions

Postby cwgrlbelle » 10 Jan 2011, 23:14

I was fortunate enough to come into some old family photos... but I can't make out the handwriting well enough to even copy into an online translator.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
thanks!

I think the Italian words are

e questo sono io che mi sto facento un becchiere di vino
Cognato e zio Giuseppe Capobianco

I believe this translates to: and this is me (it says I) who is making myself (meaning "pouring myself") a glass of wine-

brother-in-law and uncle, Giuseppe Capobianco

thank you!!

i have 4 more, but for some reason they won't upload.

i have one large group portrait - but that one has no writing. each of the individual family portraits has the name on the back... but i can't read the writing. my aunt thinks my grandfather had three brothers - i was hoping to figure out which family photo was the sister.

thank you again!
