Casella and Denegri

Postby fmcasella » 10 Sep 2010, 04:45

I have the two last names that originated from Italy, from the Denegri side... I don't know much else other than the origin which is Sicilian. I know the Denegri's migrated from Italy to Peru in late 1800's and that my ancestor is the brother of the better known Aurelio Denegri. As for the surname Casella, it is also Sicilian and it was a man who migrated to peru in the early 1900's, we have his picture too.. but don't know much else... anything would help. Thanks !

Are you aboslutely sure that Denegri was a sicilian origin lastname?
I believe it is a tipical ligurian surname, in the north of Italy....
Casella lastname is present in Liguria but more or less it is present all over Italy...

I found many references on googlebooks for Aurelio Denegri:

http://books.google.com/books?id=lqBHAA ... CEYQ6AEwCA

Aurelio Denegri era figlio di Pedro, il commerciante genovese che arrivò in Perù negli anni trenta dell'Ottocento
.

Was Pedro's wife Carmen Valega?

Another reference talks about Pedro Negri coming from Chiavari - Genoa Province - Liguria region...

I believe there are many resources on.line and many books talking about your ancestors....
