profession?

Postby ginaruiz1998 » 12 May 2013, 03:56

Can someone please take a look at this Atto di Morte for Barbara Scardino ( Atto # 144) and see if you can make out the profession of her father?

Grazie!

The occupation listed is borgese. Below is a link to a thread where there was a long discussion of the meaning of this word as an occupation. Occupation lists usually translate it to mean "middle class," but you find in this thread that that was not really the meaning of the profession

Thank you! I thought it said "borgese"...but it was so light/faded and hard to make out! Thank you for providing the link to the thread with the discussion on the meaning! So very interesting!
