Roggi;Cecchini from Lucca

Postby mernbanas » 14 Apr 2010, 23:08

Looking for any information regarding my family. Abdenago Roggi- married Elisa Cecchini. They came to the U.S in 1909. Children were Italo,Yarli,Yolanda,Italia and Grace. I have towns with names similar to Lunari, Lammari Lanauri- I do know they were from the Lucca area. Astutillo Roggi was Abdenago's brother.

Welcome to the forum!

Lammari is in the comune of Capannori in the Province of Lucca.

Do you have US documents for your family? Ship manifests, census, etc.?

Details such as years of birth, place of residence in US will help the search.

Yes I have this manifest. It is the correct person although the manifest says Aldenago- he had no L in his name. His wife Elisa is shown here as well but I can not find any record of her passage. My father says she came several months later with the children. Her maiden name was cecchini- I have also seen it spelled checcini-

Tessa-

Wow thank you. Your second post with the draft card and census I had. I just never found the manifest for Elisa. I must be too new at this because I have surely searched. When I was in New York last summer I didn't have enough time to stay at Ellis Island and look for these things. I am very grateful for you fast assistance.
I find it odd tooo, that when I do a surname search in Italy for the name Roggi I come up with nothing. Clearly they came from Lammari and must have some other family there or in the area. What is the best to find Abdenago's family?

Glad to have helped... :D

The phone book lists 10 people with the Roggi surname in the area around Lammari (Lucca). You might want to write to one (or all) and inquire. Here is the link to the addresses:

I did send a letter but have not received any reply. I will send to others. I am now looking for my great grandmothers father. My father has a photo with the name Gio-Battista Cecchini 1-9 -1869 3-7-1946 As far as I know henever came to the US. He would have lived in the Lucca area as well. Could his name also be Giovani? Any help appreciated

I am looking for any information on a Ms. Anna Roggi who married Louis Kress...I have little to no information on her, except her maiden name, which I believe is Italian. Any info would help!
