minor nobles

Postby Anizio » 20 Oct 2014, 18:49

I am trying to find more about my family line from Torno, Lombardia.

Specifically two minor noble families:

Malacrida; feudal lords of Musso and Poschiavo around 1500 when Torno and Como went to war.
But there is very little about them between 1500 and the 1800s.

Ruspini; a ruling class family from Torno who, in the 1800s applied to be entered into the Libro d'Oro using a family genealogy written by Fulvio Tridi from Como going back to the 1400s proving their nobility. There is lots on them in the mid/late 1800s, but I want to trace it back.

Does anyone know how I could find out more about these families?
Maybe a place I could find that genealogy written by Fulvio Tridi?
TIP: When asking for records from Italy, do NOT ask for an "estratto." ALWAYS ask for a "copia integrale." A photocopy of the original Act will contain more information
