help with traqnslation of a profession listed on birth certi

Postby EdDiDo » 01 Jun 2011, 05:08

I have come across the word segatore. It is listed as a profession for many of the male residence of Scontrone. I cannot get a translation for this word. Does anyone know what this word means?

Thanks for the help

"segatore" means someone who cuts by a saw. So, what he saws depends on the context...may be wood, or iron, or marble, etc.
