I am looking to locate anyone sharing the name Andrucci / Andreucci, especially from Picinisco.
I believe my great great grandfather Luigi Andreucci (Andrucci) who along with his wife Serafina and their son my great grandfather Paolo (Paul) emigrated from Picinisco in the early 1900's for the UK.
I have been looking for information for a number of years now always without success and would be extremely appreciate if anyone could help me locate my relatives in Italy.
The civil record for Picinisco can be located in the family histyorylibrary of the Mormon church nearest your home for the years 1809 to 1865 covering all births,marriages and deaths in the family. You can teace your relatives alive and dead back to 1809 by writing to the Uffico di Stato Civile in Picinisco for current members but you will need specific names. You can request a certificato di Stato di Famiglia storico to uncover all members of the families your tracing. Peter
Do a person search on Andreucci, and your family shows up in Newcastle. Luigi 37, Serafina 40, Paolo 13, Nicola 10, Tormracleta 4, Michels 3 and Antonio 1 month. (Mis-spellings as on the census site). Paolo and his parents are shown as born in Italy, Nicola and his yonger brothers and sisters show as born in Newcastle. Therfore I would put the emigration date between the births of Paolo and Nicola.
There is supposedly more information on this site, but it is not free.
Dear "LIONESS" (please forgive me for using a vulgarity for a name ) You may wish to consider writing one letter to each of the persons in Picinisco asking them what they about your family since this is obviously what you are seeking depite all the hoopla you are getting. You can write in italian or very simple english sentences since english is also taught in the schools; being a mandatory second language. Should you wish to write in italian go to www.freetranslation.com and they will allow you 1800 words free of charge. Include one copy of the same letter along with a self addressed envelope and a euro or pound for stamps. It has been tried in the past and with great success. Peter
My immigration dates do appear to be out as I have recently found my family on the 1891 census.
I guess this means they arrived in the UK within the 3 years prior to this date, as my great great grandfather was listed as 3 yrs old at the time of this census.
As for writing to the Uffico di Stato Civile in Picinisco, I did this unfortunately I received no reply.
Am I right in thinking I should resend the letter? As I had heard a law was past a while back making it possible to contact the major should the information not be released within a specified time.
I am also hoping to visit the Mormon Family Search Centre, unfortunately they seem to only open late one night per week and I live some distance away. Does anyone know if they hold copies of all records on site or would I have to make a request that the information be sent over from Salt Lake?
