death record #24.B for Generoso Grasso

I have 3 questions:

1. I would appreciate thoughts on his profession - magnoso or magnojo? the closest I have found in an occupation listing is magnano (locksmith).


2. Concordia's last name: Iannarara (?)

3. this is a tough one...the spelling of Columba's last name (or any letters that can be deciphered)... i read Ami?i?rice

thanks so much

Concordia's last name: Iannarara (?)

Her surname is Iannarone

If the occupation is mugnaio (spelled as mugnajo in the record), then he would have been a miller. So possibly the second letter is a "u" and not an "a."

Annicchiarico- for the other surname

Columba's surname is Annicchiarico

Edit: Opps! Sorry for the duplication :oops:

you are correct with the profession...i found one of his relative's records (inwhich the handwriting was clearer, and the professions is mugnaio.
