Cousin Connection : ROGANTINI

Postby TimInMN » 03 Dec 2014, 06:49

I'm stuck and so glad I found this forum. I have been talking with someone from Piuro who shares may last name and we have been trying to find a connection to our family. She told me about two brothers who traveled to the USA in the 1890's name Giavanni ROGANTINI (1851) and Giosue ROGANTINI (1859). She stated she was not related to them and gave me their parents names of Pietro and Marta. They also had another brother who stayed in Italy named Giuseppe (1853). She said her family was not related to this family.

As we talked about others, she stated that Sofia ROGANTINI (1884) was her dad's great aunt and that Sofia had married a Giacinto LISIGNOLI (1885). They moved to the USA. This was the news I was looking for because they were my dad's cousins living in Minnesota (same town) so we found the connection.

BUT...

Turns out, after finding my great grandfathers death certificate, his parents WERE Pietro ROGANTINI (1823) and Marta ROGANTINI (1819). My only reasoning can be that my friend in Italy only thought they weren't related but really are OR we were not related to Sofia and Giacinto LISIGNOLI.

Sofia's parents were Giacomo ROGANTINI (1852) and Maria SCIALCHI.

I'm asking for help in finding a connection between Giacomo and Pietro ROGANTINI.

Thanks. Tim Rogentine

Thank you Marty. This is great. The thing that is confusing me is that Sofia's father was a Rogantini and Giacinto's mother was a Rogantini. I can only assume that they were from two different families. If they were related, that would make them some sort of cousins that were getting married. What are your feelings on this. Not sure what the culture was then on marrying family members.

Very possible in a small town that cousins married each other during that era I have a few that did in the small town of Trabia not much to pick from in those small towns
