Often in our genealogy research we come across words that may be unfamiliar to us. An indispensible resource to make our understanding of these terms easier are "genealogy glossaries". Simply put, these are a collection of words and terminology that describe legal, medical, and occupations, that are relevant in deciphering documents. I have found several websites that are great reference aids that will help you understand many word and phrases contained in documents even if you aren't researching Italian family ancestry.
