Alfred Bandini and Elizabeth Fretina

Postby cybandini » 20 Jun 2012, 01:21

Hi I'm new to this website and glad to have found it! :) I am having such a hard time finding my Italian relatives. All I know about Alfred Bandini is that he was born on June 30, 1898 in Marliana, Pistola, Toscana, Italy and died May 1986 in the United States. He came to the United States on Feb. 15, 1907 and married Elizabeth Fretina (possibly born in Rome, Lazio, Italy). They had 5 sons but can't find anything else about Alfred Bandini or Elizabeth Fretina on ancestry. If you can help me with this, I would appreciate it. Thank you!! :D

Hi and welcome to the forum,

If this 14 february 1907 arrival manifest is correct for Alfredo (considering the you know that he arrived in the U.S. on 15 february 1907):

Then he was travelling with his mother Isa Bandini, age 31 and siblings Luigi male age 9 and Bianca female age 4, them both were going to Elizabeth PA to meet Isa's husband Bandini Angelo. They were coming from Marliana.

All child born in the U.S (Elizabeth PA)... Them both stated they were going to join Angelo's son Alfredo Bandini in Elizabeth... is this the correct family for your ancestors?

Thanks so much for the information about my ancestors!!!! It really helped. Now I want to search for my Italian ancestors who stayed in Italy. Angelo Bandini (brother Isacco Bandini) was born in Marliana, Pistoia on 24 Jan. 1873. His wife, Ida (Edith) Natali was born in the same city about 1875. Joseph Grattina was born in Italy in Apr. 1860 and his wife, Albenia (Amelia) Fretina was born in Aug. 1872 in Italy. They married about 1894. How would I search for information about the parents of these 4 ancestors. I am still very new at this and appreciate your help and ideas!! :D

Hi. My name is Taylor Bandini, and I live in California. David Bandini is my dad. My grandpa is Alfred Bandini (born in 1924), the son of Alfred Bandini Sr. Alfred Sr. and Elizabeth are my great-grandparents. So what is our relationship to each other?

I don't have much information about this side of my family and would like to know much more about them and my Italian ancestry. Do you have any information that you could share with me?
