Peter,

I do not have a Family History Library near enough to me and LDS does not have the records on CD (that I have found) or indexed in IGI.

Hi Dan.
I live in the area your ancestor was from.
I won't promise you nothing, but maybe there's something I can do for you (just be patient for a few days). For now, I can confirm you that LDS microfilmed the church registers of the Dioceses of Ivrea, whose jurisdiction includes San Giusto's parish.
Ciao,
Maurizio

Hi DAN.
Today I had the chance to take a look for San Giusto's church records. I quickly examined the Baptism Acts in the decade 1890-1900, and found something like 28 newborns with the surname CERUTTI (or CERRUTI, with an often swinging spelling even when refering to the same family), which was (and still is) very common in that village.
Among them I could easily identify the individual you're looking for, who results to be born on May 1st 1894 and baptized the following day: so dates seem to match with those you already had. I also found two siblings: a sister Domenica CERUTTI born on October 9 1891; and a brother Giuseppe born on July 2nd, 1896. I took pictures of these acts, and if you want I can email them to you (write me an email or use the pm on this website to tell me your address, in case you are interested).
Also, you mentioned Leechsburg, PA as one of the places where Francesco Cerutti lived while in the U.S.: what I can add is that I found many people emigrated from this particular area of Piemonte (San Giusto and the close villages of Agliè, Feletto, Lusigliè, Cuceglio, Rivarolo...) who settled there, probably recreating a small community of relatives and friends sharing the same traditions and dialects. I know some of their descendents who still lives there.

Hope this helps.
Ciao,
Maurizio

Maurizio,

Yes please send me the images, I have PM'd you my email.

I know his father (Guiseppe) had a brother Giorgio Cerutti who emigrated in 1896 and was living in Chicago Illinois. He is listed as who Francessco was going too in the ship manifest of the SS Melita.

My mother Veronica Cerutti married my father in Leechburg Pa.

Thank you very very much.

Dan

HI Dan.
Everything matches, it seems.
Also, as you will see in the records I'm sending you, Veronica was also the cristian name of Francesco's mother: and renewing the name of grandparents in grandchildren was a tradition very often followed in this part of the country.
I'll try and check if among the other Ceruttis I found there's someone son or daughter of Giorgio (they should be first cousins of Francesco, if I correctly understood).
Ciao,
Maurizio

Maurizio,

Thank you so very much.

I see that Giuseppe's father is a Francessco Cerutti, and that Veronica Plazio's father is a Francessco Plazio. That is interesting indeed.

The repeating of names is common in other countries as well and during my research I have seen it in Sweden, FInland, Netherlands as well.

I would like to be able to find out more about Giuseppe, Giorgio's parents and of course the Plazio family as well. I have replied to you via email.

Again thank you so very much.

Dan
