Choidini help..

Postby cudders » 29 Jul 2009, 20:33

Hi,

Trying to find out about my Ancestors..My Great grandfather was Francis Chiodini and his father John.. Apart from Francis getting married in Leeds, UK in 1914 I cant find much else. I have found him on the UK 1911 census living in Liverpool, he was a musician(violinst) and working 'at sea'. The family story is that he played on the Liners between UK and USA and visited Boston where he appartly played as a guest for the Orchestra there and was snowed in at some point..

Cant seem to find anything else so I'm stuck. No idea if the route traces to Ireland or Italy or even the US? Neither Francis or John appear on any other UK Census records.

Can anyone help out?

The surname Chiodini appears to be concentrated north west of Milan.

Francis's marriage in Leeds is can be narrowed by records at www.freeBMD.org.uk...perhaps licence application may provide more data. =Peter=
