", di anni quarantotto"

Postby meticulousmobile » 10 Dec 2007, 19:15

On my GGrandfather Vincenzo Pennellas' birth record from Grumento Nova on 25 Nov, 1888, it lists his father as "Pennella Michele, di anni quarantotto, contradino". Does this mean he was 48 years old at the time of Vincenzos' birth? That will help me order the correct year of film for Micheles' birth if so. Contradino means peasant, or country laborer, etc, correct? Thanks!

Hi, Yes it seems right, quite strange they mention his age... Contadino means peasant, if you have any doubt send a jpg and I'll have a look
Cheers

That's correct, 48 is the age and contadino=farmer, is the profession.

Thanks! Then I'll be ordering film of births around 1840, time to find the next generation!
