From Amy Johnson Crow: Week 4's theme is "Curious." Several people have already asked how to interpret this. Remember -- it's completely up to you! When I put the list together, I was thinking of something that you've always wanted to discover (something you're curious about) or a record/discovery that you find curious (unusual). You could also write about an ancestor who was curious (an inventor or detective, perhaps?)

Shortly after the death of his fist wife Lena in 1918, Paolo and his children started living with his sister, Concetta, brother-in-law Vincenzo and their family. On the census, you see that his job was listed as "city detective". It seems that some time between 1917 and 1920 he became a detective. Not bad. I'm not sure what the circumstances were. However, I am impressed he made it that far in three short years! I noted his profession on WikiTree and let it simmer until I got a DNA match who descended from his daughter, Beatrice. She confirmed that her great-grandfather was indeed a detective and that's not all! She gave me what is essentially a genealogy book of her family and inside its pages is a story about one of his cases!
