Hi Donna

It looks like that to me also but possibly it is meant to be "Faticatore" - Heavy Laborer?

Yes, as we do! :) It will be interesting to see if it is something else then. That occupation appears twice on a document in one of your other threads as well I noticed.

angela,
not to be sexist here...but it just seems out of sync...
it is the most common occupation in this town in these early years...there are some bracciale and some contadina....but mostly fatigatore/i

thanks,
donna

I think I'm understanding what you are saying here Donna. Our female Italian immigrants worked incredibly hard. My mum was amazing, the amount of really heavy work she did, even through her pregnancies. She was unstopable and had more stamina than my older brothers.
