Looking for information on my family that started out in California Bay area in the early 1900's. My grandfather was Domenic Charles Bottini . Born and raised in the bay area. Children Joan and Kenneth. Spouse Nellie Lavina.
Any help would be appreciated.

California Birth Index, 1905-1995 about Dominico Bottini Name: Dominico Bottini Birth Date: 7 May 1908 Gender: Male Mother's Maiden Name: Piantini Birth County: Contra Costa
so the mother surname is PIANTINI... or Piantanida
the brother: California Birth Index, 1905-1995 about John C Bottini Name: John C Bottini Birth Date: 27 Jun 1910 Gender: Male Mother's Maiden Name: Piantini Birth County: Contra Costa
maybe the mother was Theresa Piantanida married at Bottini born in 1882:

Italian records can be found in the town (comune) of origin in Italy.
Sometimes comune records can be found on microfilm from the Family History Library.
It doesnâ€™t appear that Lonate Pozzolo has been filmed yet.
Since Giuseppe stated he was born in Lonate Pozzolo, Varese, Lombardy, you may want to write to the commune for his birth record.
You may also want to ask for his marriage record & Teresaâ€™s birth record.

This is my family! I am also a great-grandaughter of Joseph (Giuseppe) Bottini and Teresa Piantanida Bottini. My grandmother was Carrie (Carolina) Bottini Fio Longstreet, sister of Dominic and John Bottini. She was actually born in Lonate Pozzolo and came over with her mother, Teresa in 1905. My great-grandfather came over in 1904.
My birth name is Theresa Carolina Bottini. My father, Richard Bottini legally changed his surname from Fio when he was a teenager because his parents divorced when he was a baby and he grew up in Joseph and Teresa's home - so he took their last name.
Simplyred - we are definitely cousins. Contact me as I have more info on the family. I am also in contact with the remaining Piantanida cousins in Lonate Pozzolo. Unfortunately, there are no Bottini relatives still living in Lonate.
I actually went to the Lonate Comune Office with my cousin, Maria Grazia Piantanida in 2004, trying to get copies of birth certificates for Joseph, Teresa, my grandmother Carolina and my grandfather, Pietro Fio. Unfortunately, because all the records are in an offsite storage facility, you have to write them a letter and enclose 5 Euros per copy requested. I have just never got around to it yet......
I will be returning to Lonate for 2 days at the end of May this year and hope to be able to gather a bit more information from my Piantanida cousins while I am there.
