Galineti and Cerutti- Cortereggio

Postby adzeman21 » 24 Apr 2010, 16:48

My great grandparents were Peter Galineti (b. ca. 1871) and Lucy Cerutti (b. ca. 1874). He may have emigrated about 1887. They turn up in Port Arthur and Fort William, Ontario (now Thunder Bay) in 1919 but had a child, Costanso (aka Peter C.), my grandfather, in Hancock, Michigan in 1900. In 1921 Canadian border crossing documents list all family members as Canadian citizens. In these 1921 documents Peter gives his occupation as 'merchant', Costanso as 'repairman'. The family name became Galinet.
I know Costanso became a bootlegger- he served a sentence in the penitentiary in Chillicothe, Ohio in 1930. He is listed there as a 'resident' in the 1930 Census, while his wife Frieda is listed as head of household in Three Rivers, Michigan.
My family knows next to nothing about Peter and Lucy before 1900 except that they were born in Cortereggio, Piemonte. This information is had from an old family friend.

Gallinatti Pietro, age 41, married, last permanent residence Canada - F. William - returning from a trip to Italy, nearest relative in Italy, his mother Teresa in San Giorgio, place of birth San Giorgio

Thank you pink67 and vj! I was taking a break fron researching my English ancestors and thought I'd try the Italians. I had no hope that I'd strike it rich so soon. The data you've given me is priceless- I'm certain I couldn't have done it on my own. Laura, I owe you a spaghetti dinner. (I can make a good one!) My mother and sister will be thrilled.- Bill

The story you've shared of Peter "Galinet" and Lucia "Cerutti" track with what the story my father told of our ancestors arriving in the United States. This was exciting to see. I'm just beginning to research my ancestory on my father's side. Thank you for the information.
