My 91 yr old father looking for answers re: his mother

Postby meisha1989 » 02 Apr 2012, 15:51

My father is ill and has always wanted to try and find out his orphaned mother's parent(s)before his death. Not sure this can be done. She supposedly was born 1897, supposedly in Genova, left at Santo Spirito Hospital in Rome region. Dressed in very "fine quality" clothing...last name either Cantisani or Canisani and fostered by the Tucci family in Castro dei Volsci. Is there any way to find out more?

I cannot find the name Canisani, but found Cantisani name, nearest to Genova being a town called Cassano, Polinago, Modena, Emilia Romagna, Italy.

Tucci name is definately found in Castro Dei Volsci!

Where did she emmigrate too?
Do you have any more names or places?

You could contact as-fr@beniculturali.it (frosinone state archives) for information (in Italian)?

Email as-fr@beniculturali.it and ask if they can look for the marriage for your Grandmother Tucci (Cantisani)and Rocco De Angelis in Castro dei Volsci around 1919, and hopefully they will let you know?

De Angelis is also found in Castro dei Volsci!

It might be worth you ordering the Birth (nati) records for either Genova, or Polinago to try to see if you can find a birth match?

Goto https://www.familysearch.org/search/cat ... m%2F472795
for Cassano, Polinago, or research Genova, whichever you want?

Chances are, if she was left at Santo Spirito in Rome, her birth was registered in Rome unless she was also left with her birth registration which would be very unusual. You should try to get her birth registration from Rome. Her marrriage record would provide a more certain place of birth so that should be your first request. Request from the town itself. The Provincial archives don't have anything afer 1898.
