Orsini and Piccolomini Family History and Info

Postby corsini » 30 Jun 2005, 18:45

Hello! I am starting to my research of my surnames and want to learn more about my family and their history. My grandfather's name was Rinaldo Orsini, Jr and his Father was Rinaldo Orsini as well. I believe he came over from Ascoli Piceno in the early 1900's, but not too certain. My great grandmother's name was Marcellina Piccolomini, who married Rinaldo after they came over to the US. Some of Rinaldo's siblings are Angelo and Theresa, but there are more I believe. Last place of residence was in West Virginia. Looking for relatives in US and Italy and any info is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Hi:

Here is your family from the 1930 census:

http://img72.imageshack.us/img72/3896/1930orsino4mb.jpg

Name: Rinaldo Orsini
Age: 32
Estimated birth year: abt 1898
Birthplace: Italy
Relation to head-of-house: Head
Spouse's Name: Marcellina Orsini
Race: White
Home in 1930: Arden, Berkeley, West Virginia
Image source: Year: 1930; Census Place: Arden, Berkeley, West Virginia; Roll: 2526; Page: 5B; Enumeration District: 2; Image: 40.0.

This contains alot of good information. Rinaldo came to the US in 1913 and Marcellina in 1909. In 1930 they are both naturalized. YOu can look for naturalization records with NARA, local courts, or write INS and file a freedom of information request.

I will look for more records.

Debbie

Edit:
Also look at the family under Orsini. Is it possible to be Marcellia's family?

I am the daughter of Amalia Orsini Bohrer who was Rinaldo's sister. Rinaldo and Marcellina had seven children: Angelo Frippo, Daniel Ram, Rinaldo "Ned", Maria Teresa, Amalia, and Ernestine Ottavia. Rinaldo had two sisters Amalia and Catherine, a brother Arsenio and a half-brother names Rodolfo. Arsenio married Rachele Pearla and they had three children: Tito, Jennie, and Teresa. I believe Rodolfo married Giuseppina Ciccolini and they had two children Bartholomew R and Giovanni. Rinaldo's parents were Bartolomeo Orsini and Teresa Acquistucci.
I have had difficulty finding information for those in Italy. I hope this helps.
Sincerely,
Lori Cutright
