looking for info, last name Buffi in Edolo, Lombardia, IT.

Postby nebuffi » 12 Aug 2010, 14:03

I am looking for information for my great-grandfather Barney G Buffi, born 4/4/1880. It is believed he was born in Edolo, Lombardia, IT and immigrated to the US in or around 1900/1902. I have found what I believe to be his Ellis Island records, but I have no further information on any of his family (parents, siblings, etc). He may even be from Constandelo, IT, and his name may have been Bernardo, turned into Barney to become 'Americanized'. Any help would be appreciated!

Hi,
Bernardo Buffi made some trip, but in the trip of 1913, back in Montana, wife Elisa in Butte, Montana, the birthplace seeming Castenedolo (Brescia province).. maybe.... if the name town is a bit right,
because it exist also Cortenedolo that I suspect more right name of a hamlet as a well Vico ( mentioned in the trip of 1904) of Edolo town:

:D Hi suanj :D
I'm always happy to help.
Not having much luck figuring out Barney's mother's maiden name.
I don't think Danki is correct.
Hard to tell if it's a spelling error or a bad transcription.

Hi Valarie, the mother surname could be Bianchi or Branchi both present in Edolo...
