I would like help tracing my great grandfather please

Postby stockwellkid » 06 May 2012, 21:05

Good Evening,

My late great grandfather [Enrico Vecchi] born 1861 died 1927 in London England I believe came from Bologna but I am not sure whether in the city or outside it? Is there anyway of finding out? and if any family are still alive in the area? A long shot I know but worth a try.

Thank You

Hello and welcome! :-)

Is ths a child of your GGF?

Name: Umberto Enrico
Gender: Male
Baptism/Christening Date: 07 Jun 1896
Baptism/Christening Place: SAINT ANNE SOHO, WESTMINSTER, LONDON, ENGLAND
Birth Date: 03 May 1896
Birthplace:
Death Date:
Name Note:
Race:
Father's Name: Enrico Vecchi
Father's Birthplace:
Father's Age:
Mother's Name: Emily Eliza
Mother's Birthplace:
Mother's Age:
Indexing Project (Batch) Number: C15051-5
System Origin: England-VR
Source Film Number: 1468920

Sometimes we can identify place of birth by looking at later records...
Did Enrico marry in England?
A birth record for a child, a census, a marriage record may help.

Based on the above Film number, if this is your ancestor, you can visit your local LDS Family History Center and view the films for St. Anne Soho... Maybe you will find a marriage, other births/christenings, to help. :-)

Appears that Enrico Vecchi was married in summer of 1885...
If you could get a copy of the marriage record, you may find his exact place of birth, and probably the names of his parents :-)
