I am an Italian-American looking for information on my mother's family:
Mother: Luciana Franchi, born Rapallo, Italy 8-5-1923
Grandmother: Rosa Matilde (or Matilde Rosa) De Guiseppe Franchi, born Jan. 12, 1887, died 1968. Married: Guiseppe Luigi Franchi.
Guiseppe Franchi was, supposedly, a doctor and died sometime during the war - 1942, 1943 or 1944.
The Franchi's lived in Florence. Rosa Franchi had 3 sisters, one may have married a Spinoza or de Spinoza.
I have very little information about the Franchi or De Guiseppe family and there is no one left to ask. Any leads, ideas or information would be greatly appreciated. Multo gracia. Ciao.
