trying to find my Family in Maenza Italy.

Postby jsoprano » 13 Jul 2013, 19:51

Hi,I have been trying for years to find information about my family in Maenza. My Grand mother Natalina Montini and my Grandfather Paul Soprano both migrated to the US from Italy in the early 1900's. Unfortunatley they both passed away before I was born and the hand me down information I have gotten from family has been very sketchy. any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you so much. Most of this information I have. what I cant find is anything about them before they came to the US. I do know Natalina Montini was indeed married to Chiovini, in fact my fathers name was Chiovini when he was 3 according to the census. I am 85% sure Natalina's Mothers name was Francesca Iaccobelli. I have tried to find out more about them in Italy but have hit a wall.
