Sondrio

Postby aussieguy2402 » 27 Jun 2013, 09:45

Hi all
For my grandmothers 92nd birthday I am trying to find some old documents and photos for her. She was born in Sondrio in 1921 and left to come to australia in 1952. She lost most of her old photos prior to her leaving but she did say they were taken form her by some government officals.
Her Married name is Angela Gandossi, her maiden surname is Credaro. Is there anywhere I can write to or any websites that I can find old photos and documents?

thanks!
Simon

you sure that your grandmother was born in Sondrio town and not in some Commune in Sondrio province' Many Gandossi and Credaro emigrated in Australia coming from Montagna town in Sondrio province...

I have tried asking my grandmother but her memory is not good. But I did find out the town was Montagna.

Hello!
This is the website of the Comune of Montagna in Valtellina
http://www.comune.montagnainvaltellina.so.it
You can ask for your grandmother birth certificate writing to anagrafe@comune.montagnainvaltellina.so.it
(to make the research quicker supply her date of birth and the name of her parents)
The Museo Etnografico Tiranese has done a great job in researching the emigration from Sondrio Region (a valley called Valtellina), Maybe they can help you
museo.tirano@provincia.so.it
Also there is a book by J.Templeton about emigration from Valtellina to Australia

Happy birthday to your grandmother!
