Looking for Benedetti in Toscana

Postby sbalves7 » 22 Sep 2008, 17:43

Hi there,

I am looking for my Italian family, my great-grand-father Emilio Benedetti (was born 06/Nov/1852 in Lucca) arrived in Brazil in 1881 and dead in 12/dez/1924. His father Pietro Benedetti dead in Italy (19/Nov/1904). His mother was Maria Benedetti, and he had two brothers Orestes Benedetti, and another one that I dont know the name.

My family tree in Brazil:

I'm waiting for news....
Thanks

When you say your family town of origin is Lucca you mean Lucca City and not some small town in Lucca Province. You can find microfilm records for your family from 1866 to 1910 at your nearest family history Library (www.familysearch.org under ancestor search) and it costs about $5.00 and copies can be made. Take along a companion book even though there are not many years distant from where your family genealogy started in terms of years, titled Discovering Your Italian Ancestors by Lynn Nelso and a magnifying glass. =Peter=

Not totally off subject, but I wonder if you are related to the Benedetti family in Haverhill, MA...they have THE BEST Submarine Sandwich Shop EVER!

Not entirely off subject either. I hardly think so. =Peter=
