Need help a translation

Postby gemellua » 27 Nov 2011, 22:45

What does the word "Braccialiero" mean? It is listed as the occupation of my grandfather
on his death record from Palermo.

Thank you

Hello and welcome :-)

BRACCIALE and BRACCIANTE mean "farm hand"...
What you see may be the same thing in dialect.

Here is a link for occupation translations :-)
