Roots of family name RIVA-VERCELLOTTI

Postby Riva-Vercellotti » 08 Jun 2011, 23:42

My grandfather was a RIVA-VERCELLOTTI DEGASPERI. Born in Casapinta in the now Provincia di Biella (Piedmonte). Can anyone help me find relatives either through the Degasperi side, or the Riva-Vercellotti side. Thanks.

Searching for living relatives can be very time consuming. YOu can write a letter to everyone in the town with that surname ( but that only gets you people with a current telephone line.
Or you can start with your last relative born in Italy and work sideways, finding any siblings they left behind by writing to the Comune if the records are not on microfilm. Birth records will usually tell you who the females married so you can follow those lines also.
