Gizzi, Picinisco & Apollinio, Vastogirardi

Postby lawlpowe » 05 Sep 2011, 15:27

I'm attempting to trace the ancestry of Michael Angelo Gizzi from Picinisco, born in 1859 and who married a Nicolina Pagliaro.

I believe his father was Pio Giovanni Gizzi born in 1814 Picinsco again, and then Andrea Gizzi born approx. 1784?

Is anybody else connected to this family at all? I understand that there's a tree dating back to 1600? I've contacted a few people via email and have had no response yet...? I'm searching for a neighbour who doesn't have the internet, she's been told there's a connection to the Cardinal Tommaso Gizzi too?

She also has connections re. Deponeo/Apollinio from Vastogirardi in Italy who also have connections to the D'Amicone and the Pondas. Any help would be appreciated! :D

Picinisco records go back to 1545 or so. The records are missing the first marriage book but the index is complete with fathers' names' and year of marriage.

Hi Stuart. I had only gone as far back as Andrea Gerardo Antonio Gizzi, but I believe he married a Fortuna Minchella. His son you mention, Pio Giovanni Gizzi married Maria Valenti. That is all the information extra to your own that I have

I was told by my neighbour that they were always told the Gizzis were related to the Cardinal Tommaso Pasquale Gizzi whose parents were Nicola Gizzi and Cecilia Ciavaglia but I haven't been able to find any evidence of this..

Thank you for linking me to your website as well, it's very informative :)

Italysearcher thanks for the information but this is the first research I've done in Italy and I'm based in North Wales, UK. Are there online databases so that I can expand the information I have to include siblings etc?

Lisa

I have no information on Links to Cardinal Gizzi.

I have Michele Angelo Gizzi as having a son Louis Gizzi b circa 1890 England

Then John Gizzi b circa 1915 England

Loreto Pietro Martire Gizzi had 9 children

Giovanni Pasquale Gizzi had 7 children

If you have any links or information on Domenico Gizzi who lived in Glasgow circa 1930s it would be helpful.

Thanks

I have been doing researching the Gizzi side of my family and have been having trouble finding information on an Antonio Gizzi who was married to a Beatrix Campolini. They had seven children, two of which were girls. I have no other information on either of them. If anyone knows something I would love some help!
