What's this occupation?

Postby aliza24 » 02 Feb 2012, 23:37

Hi guys,

I came across an occupation I'm not familiar with and I don't see anything that resembles it on my lists. It looks like 'gia**ntaio'?

The occupation is on the 3rd line down from the top...the sentence starting with Saverio.

Thanks in advance for any help!

PS -- I'm getting a message saying the "board attachment quota has been reached" and it won't let me attach the image???

Thanks! I uploaded it...I think this is the URL. I don't know how to do this. Can't you just attach/upload an image directly here?

Translation:
Giumentaio was the shepherd or farmer of the pack animals (mares) who were used to transport goods or pull carts or carriages.

Grazie, Tessa! That's what that says...giumentaio! I couldn't make that middle part out and this is the first time I've seen that occupation anywhere.

Thanks again.
