artisan

My great-grandmother's occupation is listed as "artisan" (around 1860). What are the things that she might be doing as an artisan?
Thanks for any help.

Hello!

I have very little that is written by my father's sisters, but here is a message on the reverse of a photograph and I was hoping someone could give me a translation. Thanks for your help!

Re: Prisoner of War? in Michigan?

Tessa and Biff...thank you so much! The links were filled with great information. All of this fits with what I was told and it's all going in the "file" which I am creating trying to give information about many of the family stories. In addition to the photo which shows everyone in a camp ...

Prisoner of War? in Michigan?

Hello, hoping someone can help with this. I have a photo that shows family members with two men in uniform with part of a patch on their left arms and I can see the letters ITAL on it so I am wondering if these two were prisoners of war or possibly non-USA citizens being held. They are all standing ...

Re: Italian Name / American Name

Is the birth certificate from Italy enough documentation? It contains all the other information except the translation of his first names.

Italian Name / American Name

Hello, I hope this isn't a poor question but if someone is named GIUSEPPE FRANCESCO but when he arrived in the US as an adult became known as Frank Joseph (same surname for both versions), is this enough to prove it is the same person???? Of course I do know he is the same person but would my word b...

Luisa's last name?

Attached (I hope) is marriage certificate for my grandparents. I am not certain about Luisa's last name, not sure whether first letter is a P. I'd like to know the spelling of her last name. She is the mother of the groom. Thank you for your help!

Re: Colatruglio

Thank you for replying. I do not have a copy of the marriage act. The only thing I do have is a portion of my father's birth certificate which has her name on it. That, and the fact that my father told me her name. I don't know how to attach anything to this mail. My father was Giuseppe Francesco De...
