female occupation "Filandera E Fariera"

Postby 3sunshine » 22 Sep 2013, 20:51

Asking for assistance in deciphering/translating the occupation listed as "Filandera E Fariera" found on an LDS/familysearch.org index record - it could be transcribed incorrectly from the original Death Act of a female who died in the year 1821 in Grotte, Agrigento, Sicily. I expect to be ordering the microfilm so I can examine the document.

Thanks in Advance!
