Can't make out a profession

Postby 113yearslater » 18 Dec 2014, 18:47

Hello to all!

I've got a marriage record for what appears to be an excellent candidate for my great-grandmother's parents, although I can't be certain. I'm having a terrible time making out the groom's profession, though:

Luigi and his father Luzio Cicchitti both appear to have the same profession, which looks something like benaio or cenaio, neither of which are turning up in online dictionaries. The bride's father was easy -- shoemaker. :-)

Also, I'm not sure what Maria Cristina Vitalli's mother's last name was -- Tinaro? Tirano? Yikes!

Thanks for any information you can share!

The profession is Beccaio - Butcher.

I'm not sure about the surname. It looks Tinaso but I can't find this name anywhere. Someone else might have a better idea.

Lovely -- thank you! Hopefully someone will chime in who recognizes that name. :-)

Hm, I went to the gensinfo site and found "Tinaro" there and in that area:

That could be it. It's not common at all, though.

Good thinking :)

That could be it. It's not common at all, though.Maybe have a look at some indices from the town and see if the name is there. That's what I do when I'm stuck. I need to go out now so can't help, sorry. Good luck.

Angela :D

TINARO is found in Atessa and in Vasto in Chieti Province :-)

BTW - the current mayor of Atessa is Nicola Cicchitti
