Looking for info on Cattani/Bianchini

Postby LuCatt » 14 Jun 2010, 20:47

Hi all I'm new to genealogy. don't really know where to begin. Looking for any information on my grandparents to begin a family tree. My grandfather was Alfredo Cattani, from Lucca, father 1st name unknown, mother last name was Leppi, first name unknown. Was wondering if he had other brothers or sisters. Came through Ellis Island.

Grandmother was Angelina Bianchini, from Lucca, father 1st name unknown, mother was Leontina fambini. Brother Ezio Bianchini, Both came through Ellis Island. Wondering if there were other brothers and sisters.

Thanks you!!

Welcome to the Forum!
We would be happy to help you get started, but we need a bit more information if you have it.

Thank you!

For reference
