Testa and Giannecchini

Postby ched03 » 29 Jul 2010, 02:33

My grandmother's maiden name is Giannecchini. Her father was Leo Giannecchini and her mother was Amy E Testa. Leo's parents were Cherubino and Dorothy. Amy's parents were Archie (which I wouldn't be surprised if it is a nickname) and Mabel. I know that Amy was born in RI about May 2 1898 and Leo was born in Lucca, Italy Feb 18 1894. That is really all I have. I have been looking for a long time and just now decided to join this forum. I have had a lot of luck with my other family searches and hoping for the same here. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks!
