World War Two babies

Postby Lindarynsaard » 10 Feb 2015, 23:49

An elderly friend of mine date of birth 23 rd Nov 1941 is
searching for relatives.
She was born in Italy
To Italian parents.
Her mothers name Eusebi Marcella
She believes her fathers
name was Francesco Andrelli or Anchelli
His date of birth was 1st of May 1915 in Turin
It is believed he died on 18th of December 1942 when
his plane was shot down
He was a pilot in the Italian Airforce
My friends name is Maria Gabriella Brizzolesi
Her mothers husband was away in he war when her mother became
Pregnant and had Maria Gabriella.
If anyone can help or point me in he right direction that would be
great my friend would just love to have some family.
When her mothers husband came back from the war
Her mother left Maria Gabriella in an orphanage and never came back
For her, she was about three years old, so she has never had
Any family and a very tough upbringing by all accounts
In her 70s now she would love to have some cousins or such like.
I have known her ten years and she is the kindest lovely lady
I've ever met.
I would be so grateful for any help.
Thank you so much,
Linda

I would be interested to learn more about her father who was an Italian Air Force pilot. By late 1942, really the only active combat operations in which the Italians were involved took place on the Eastern Front (Soviet Union). Italian troops elsewhere were engaged in occupation duty. Anyways, December 1942 was roughly when the Battle of Stalingrad was taking place, so that may have been where he was shot down. It may be worthwhile to request his military records as they might reveal some more insights about him and his background.
Interested in the surnames Liberati and Gulfo. Also interested in Italy during World War II.

My understanding is that you would need the name of the town he was born in (as well as the birth year) to request military records from the appropriate provincial archive. Good luck with the search!

Upon further investigation my friend has found the correct name of her father was Salvatore F Andreoli . I am hoping someone may recognise the name as someone who died during a World War Two with the approximate dates given, many thanks to anyone who may be able to help.
1st May 2015 is the given date of birth
Turin is the place of birth given
18th December 1942 is the date of death given
He was, so the story goes, shot down whilst flying for the Italuan airforce
But I can't find any evidence of this.
Thank you
