Re: Santa Sofia d'Epiro (Cosenza) - Catasto Onciario

Thanks, Marty. Yeah, I checked there and didn't see it either.

I was hoping I might get lucky and that it may be found somewhere else that I didn't think to check.

I have seen some towns where a copy of the Catasto was for sale. I wish they all did that!

Santa Sofia d'Epiro (Cosenza) - Catasto Onciario

Hi Gang, I have a client who is interested in some research of the Catasto Onciario for the comune of Santa Sofia d'Epiro (Cosenza). Has anyone seen the Catasto for that particular town anywhere? I'm checking databases and repositories and I'm not seeing it so far. Thanks in advance for any tips.

Anyone searched in CARFIZZI, Calabria?

Hi Guys, Just started a new search in the comune of Carfizzi (with microfilms)and the film was a disaster - mislabeled, out of order, you name it. Has anyone here searched in this town before? If so, please share any tips you have. Also -- I know Carfizzi was once part of San Nicola. Are some of the...

Grazie, Tessa! That's what that says...giumentaio! I couldn't make that middle part out and this is the first time I've seen that occupation anywhere.

Thanks again.

Re: What's this occupation?

Thanks! I uploaded it...I think this is the URL. I don't know how to do this. Can't you just attach/upload an image directly here?

What's this occupation?

Hi guys, I came across an occupation I'm not familiar with and I don't see anything that resembles it on my lists. It looks like 'gia**ntaio'? The occupation is on the 3rd line down from the top...the sentence starting with Saverio. Thanks in advance for any help! PS -- I'm getting a message saying ...

Re: Help making out the end of this sentence on mrg. record

No, your English is fine! I was just expecting something different after the word "intervened." In English when you use that word it implies that you are interrupting something, as in trying to stop it.

Thanks again!

Re: Help making out the end of this sentence on mrg. record

Grazie! Those two words seem like a contradiction though, don't they--"Intervened" and "consent?" I guess I expected after hearing that the father of the bride intervened...that there would some sort of opposition. Interesting choice of words to use "intervened." Well, thanks again! I really appreci...

Il padre della sposa ha intervenuto in questo atto ed ha prestato il suo......

That's the part I can make out. What's the last part? Anyone????

Ciao Guys-- I have this marriage rec, the groom was 43 (previously married) and the bride 28. There's a note at the bottom of the rec saying that the father of the bride intervened and....can't make out what it says after that. I'm going to attach it here. Maybe someone can figure out what else it s...

Re: Person appears to have NEVER DIED

What town was this in? And have you checked out the history of the town? If there was an event--like disease or natural disaster--that caused mass death, it's possible that they weren't all reported. And does the town have processetti/allegati? You might find her death on those records (with a young...
