Hi, I am trying to research g grand father Emil Eduardo Bianchini Evani, born or baptism st marks square Venice about 1860 (venezia) his mother Mary Bianchini most of her family were nuns and like priests, his father Joseph Evani family ran an export company from south America probably mid to late 1800s to early 1900s sugesting family left Venice. I have a letter from his brother from cost rica in 1901 he went by the name, Cayetano Bianchini.the letter was thanking my g grandmother for notifying him of his brothers death, and he will advice the consulate of his country of his brothers passing".
I have come to realize the years between 1859-1861 is in the awkward period when things were changing and records in venice between 1859-1870 are hard to find unless I know the parish. spent past 8 hours going through everything, and none the wiser how I go about this and I dont speak Italian let alone write or read it. can anyone suggest somewhere for me to start? thanks Trina
Costa Rica. Corte de CasaciÃ³n - 1896 En el recurso de casaciÃ³n interpuesto por el seÃ±or Augusto Marmocchi Musiani, por sÃ y como mandatario especial del seÃ±or Cayetano Bianchini, mayores de edad, empresarios y de este domicilio, de la sentencia dictada por la Sala Primera ...
Cayetano and Luisa had a son before their marriage:
Vicente del Socorro was born on 1901, he was son of Cayetano Bianchini and Luisa Quiros (married woman)... there is a notation on the birth act... the baby was not baptized...
BIANCHINI SONCINI, GAETANO. Naci? en 1864 y llegÃ² en 1887 a Limon. Su residencia fue Cartago y su profesion contratista. Caso con dona Luisa Quiros, siendo sus hijos Maria y Vicente Bianchini Quiros. [ANCR: Cartago N. 300 hoja 2B].
Thank you, this is wonderful, I am wondering if Cayetano, was not a brother but a cousin then, only reference I really have are death certificate my my great grand father spells Emile eduardo bianchini evani born about 1860, who I am searching for, and this letter, that referes to Eduardo as "sorry to here of my brothers passing", possible it could be an other relation, im not familiar with Italian terminology, On marriage cert, it states emile eduard evany, and his parents names are joseph Evany general importer (I expect south america ) and Mary last name hard to read. on eduard death cert calls him Evani and mother name Bianchini. My grandmothers ( eduard's daughter name is Marie Biancha Evani . Will look further to follow up the Gayetano bianchini, looks like a G, now on letter, this letter was translated to english as a "C" and he wrote from catargo ,
By reading the documents you posted I can say that Emil Eduardo's mother listed on the second image is Maria Soncini.....
and about the first document this is the transcription:
Senor Don Nhutter Cox:
Muy senor mio:
he recivido su carta consular y con el major gusto le contesto que: de propriedad de nuestros padres desgraciadamente ni nos quedÃ² nada, y mi hermano nunca vino a aquÃ¬ ni me mandÃ² dinero para tener propriedad. No se si me irÃ¨ en esta semana a trabajar por la United Fruit Co. Cuanto antes pueda irÃ¨ a esa. Cayetano Bianchini Cartago 30/11/1909
The Cayetano Bianchini that member Suanj found was living in Cartago.... these are more than coincidences...
For sure Emil Eduardo's mother was the same (Maria Soncini) of Gaetano/Cayetano (Cayetano is the spanish version of the italian Gaetano)
About the lastname Evani, in italy it doesn't exist today....
No se si me irÃ¨ en esta semana a trabajar por la United Fruit Co
11 June 1894:
Paroquia del Paraiso
Parish of Paradise Telesforo Primo Bianchini, age 23, single, artisan, born in Italy, son of Vicente (italian version of this first name is Vincenzo) Bianchini and Sonsina (possible a mispelling of Soncino) Maria Bianchina was married to Celina Ramirez
on the same database there are two child (t least) born to Telesforo and Celina, I want to show you especially this one:
Maria del Socorro Bianchini was baptized on 5 december 1897 in Paraiso, Cartago, Costa rica, she was Telesforo and Celina's daughter. Godfather was Cayetano Bianchini, Godmother was Luisa Quiros (Cayetano's wife)
Yes I have been looking and seeing the similarities, spelling differences are close match, I know our family here in australia sent photo to cayetano of emile eduard evani, why would he spell his last name different from his brother? and say his fathers name is joseph and not vincente? , i am tracing that line to see what they know, and what information they have, working to find family there now, thank you for taking time to help me here, if you find anything else please let me know, I am ever grateful, it has been ten years long searching to find information and found nothing until now, thanks to your help, didnt even see soncini, thought said bianchini, I took for granted cos of word by mouth family and death cert that mothers name was bianchini, i see now with death cert, it is not so, and i am amazed

You may be able to find other clues... Maybe Emilio had the same mother of Gaetano and Telesforo but a different father?
If he was born on 1860 he was older than the two other brothers, maybe he was son from a first marriage of Maria Soncini?
Thank you Pink, the date 1892 fits very well, I have high expectations on this being right person, I have ordered a copy of the document, this is great!
It should at least if same person, have information he has supplied himself. hopefully a birth date and place.
Well maybe could have been first marriage, Thank you to you all, You have been great help to me
Hi again, I am still awaiting the document I sent away for, doing some reserch today and wondering if you could tell me.. what is another name or translation for name Telesforo ? I have found nothing more so far, either Gaetano, cayetano, or emilie emilio, thought I would try searching for the other brother. Regards Trina
Finaly the naturalization document is open on line to see at national archives. first page says Italy and a word under it, I am not familiar with Italy but it looks like Natza, here below, perhaps one of you could be able to tell me where it could possibly be, as it looks like it is place in Italy he was born. thanks regards Trina
