Re: Profession of a 2nd GGF

Suanj, thank you for your reply. I note well your spelling (with 2 c) of faccendiere, but in the records I have seen, it is always spelled with only 1 c, perhaps using “napoletano” spelling? Anyway, I have no reason to suspect this ancestor of any underhanded professional acitivity, but some definit...

Profession of a 2nd GGF

One of my 2x GGFs was born in Naples (Chiaia) in 1832, then moved with his parents to Ischia as a small child. In his marriage record (1859 in Forio), his profession is "facendiere". In the records of birth of his children, the profession is either "commerciante", "negoziante", or "possidente", depe...

Re: Rome Restaurants

Thank you PippoM....Centocelle is fine for me, so I look forward to your list. I agree that when the restaurant is all tourists, they usually disappoint.

Rome Restaurants

As a frequent visitor, I have a few favorites that I return to, but I wonder if any of you would be kind enough to recommend a few of your favorites?

Anything within the ring-road is of interest. Thanks in advance.

Re: Calise and DiMaio families from Ischia

I should add that since I have ancestors born in most of the comunes on the island, I have noticed that when searching the indices for last names like D'Ambra, Di Lustro, Di Maio etc, make sure to look under the "A"s for Ambra, the "L"s for Lustro, and the "M"s for Maio. Said another way, don't be d...

Re: Proietto or Figlio Naturale

Dear suanj & carubia, After reading the very interesting back and forth here on this topic, I am now tempted to add yet another wrinkle....i.e. the case in post-unification Italy, especially in the exclaves of Pontecorvo and Benevento as well as other comuni in the former papal states, a child might...

Re: Silvaggi, Tiberio in Ceccano

Oh my, I'm sorry for the impossibly late reply. All research I've done has shown than in order to serve in the US military at that time (conscripted or voluntary service), a person immediately was made a US citizen, and forfeited any other citizenship. This would hereby break the line of Italian ci...
