A lesson to be learned and certainly one I should know better.

Does anyone know of records of mercantile shipping or even documentaries concerning mercantile shipping for the south east Adriatic coast? I know this sounds quite general but it has only recently dawned on me that many of my ancestors from Molfetta (fishing port) where recorded as Marinaro (Mariner) not Pescatore (fishermen) but because of a family tale of the family once owning fishing boats I did not perceive the significance of being recorded as Marinaro or Pescatore. I accept that marinaro could be used as a more general definition for a fishermen but recent information has indicated that I should be thinking in sea going terms and not fishermen, and also the records for Molfetta do consistently distinguish between the two.

Mark

Hi Mark I found this....don't know if it will help. The first link is probably closer to what you're looking for. Maybe Luca, Livio or Ada can give you a summary of what the page says.

Hi Elizabeth,
Yes the first is more of what I was looking for but the second will also come in useful so thanks very much.

Mark

The general translation of the word marinari would be 'seafarers' which covers, IMHO, all who go to sea in whatever type of vessel for whatever reason.
