merani, genoa, 1871

Postby veeeyepee » 24 Mar 2008, 20:21

My ancestor 'Giacomo Merani' also spelt 'Jacomo Merani,' fled as a stowaway from Genoa, Italy, during late 1871.
He came to settle in liverpool, England where he married Mary Winter.

I am researching my family tree for my grandparents who are really intrigued to find out more about our Italian ancestors, but I am new to this and I have no idea where to look to find Italian records.

Can anybody help me discover more about my family history? Giacomo is said to have had a large family, and it would be a great honor to trace them back as far as possible.

Can anybody help me out or give me hints? Thank you in advance.
