help deciphering occupation on 2 birth records

Postby dmt1955 » 14 Jun 2012, 00:50

birth record #585 recorded 4 November 1892
this is what i read:
Adolfo Carlo Oreste Purcaro- born 3 November 1892
father - Giuseppe Purcaro, age 60, occupation banbiero?
mother - Apollonia Puorro , no age given

is age 60 accurate?? any thoughts on his occupation? i looked at the occupations list and the closest i come to is banchiere.

the second record: #328
Marianna Zenobia OR Genobia Michelina Purcaro, born 3? OR 2? May 1891
father - Giuseppe, age 37, occupation???
Mother - Francesca d'Agostino, no age given

please help to clarify child's middle name and day of birth and father's occupation - the most i can decipher is ???ento

The age for Giuseppe Purcaro is, as you state, 60 :-)
The occupation appears to be barbiere - barber

In the second record, the date of birth looks like "due" - the 2nd - but sooo much of the ink is faded :-(
Father's occupation is a tough one :shock: The ending does look like "-ente"
My thoughts on the child's middle name would be "Zenobia" - a Greek name.

tessa,
thanks again.

i thank you and the others, who have taken the time to write out records in italian then translate into english as well as take the time to explain cursive (as in another post on 's' and 'j' and 'i'). i find it very helpful and have learned alot!
