I read "taccarellaro" (taccarelli maker) but I don't know what "taccarelli" means. Surely it is an ancient dialect word

thanks for being able to at least spell it out. i've used a few different search engines and the most i can come up with is that it is a last name!

thanks for your efforts, marcello. maybe others will have some thoughts.

Following on from our conversation earlier on your other thread, I would agree that the occupation looks like "taccarellaro" although am also tossing up whether it might be "taccorellaro". I've googled both spellings and done the same for taccarelli/taccorelli and like you found they are surnames. Taccarelli is also a town.

Are these people related to your "tagliamonte" people?

Just a couple of thoughts which may (or not) help: the word Tacca means notch, or nick. (Maybe the occupation ties in somehow with your "tagliamonte" people????

Second thought: My parents use to use a word which sounded very much like Tacca which meant "tie".

Interesting and perplexing, isn't it? :?

angela,
thanks for your thoughts on this.

this is a new town, Tufo (although it is near to Altavilla, where "my tagliamonte" are from) and how the occupations are noted can be somewhat different. so not only am i getting oriented to how this town does what it does, there is also a new vocabulary to get oriented to.

one more mystery to add to the list!
thanks again,

You certainly have had some very interesting challenges along the way. Most of my family are either farmers, landowners, or medics and come from the two same towns. Maybe as I go back further I will encounter my own challenges.

one more mystery to add to the list! Indeed, life seems to be full of them!
thanks again,

You are very welcome for the thoughts - I seem to have a lot of them :) I'll keep on with my thoughts and come back if I suddenly have a "brain wave".

Kind regards.

Angela :D

I found just two references to "taccarelli".
A single one mentioned them as some kind of firecracker.
In the others, it is said to be a piece of wood that was put in the mouth of delinquents as a torture, not to let they speak or shout.

ouch!!
i think i'll go with firecracker makers rather than thinking of my ancestors as torturers of children.

out of all the records i have reviewed in this town (Tufo), those are the only two references to 'taccarello' I have come across.

most appreciative of your efforts, pippo.

Yes, I would definitely be going with the firecracker too :)

When I was a child, we had a lovely little dog, which dad named Taccanella. He trained it to be a retriever. I wish I asked him what the name meant now.

Thank you for researching Pippo :)
