Hi,

Here is a link to the comune of Favale di Malvaro. Do you think this is the correct place of birth?

Nicholas (Nicola) Cereghino was born in 1845 in Genova (most likely Favale di malvaro) as per 1881 census. If this record does not appear in that comune then maybe Genova city is the actual place of birth....plan B as it were. =Peter=

Hi Jenni,

I'm pretty sure that your ancestor was form the Favale di Malvaro area, in Liguria.... there are many sites about a branch of the Cereghino's because they were Ballad singers and for first some of them brought the "valdese" religion in those areas...

However maybe this site can help you find something more:

you can find also the list of the registries in the local parish church:

Hope this helps!
