Giovanni Caesar Manzoni

Postby TmanzoniJohnson » 02 Jun 2015, 16:52

I am looking for family of Giovanni Caesar Manzoni or any information about him. I think he may have also been called John. He is my great grand father and may have been born in Italy or South Africa. I don't really have any other information except for his name and that he married Maria Magdelena Hendricks on 20/06/1917.

Hi

Yes, these records refer to John Manzoni (aka Giovanni) my great grandfather and Walter Manzoni, my grandfather and his siblings. Still don't have a date of birth for John except that he was either born in 1888/9.

I tried looking for Maria Magdalene Hendricks' parents details but the only information I have of them is:

Maria Magdalene Hendricks: 30 November 1892 - 8 September 1975
Father: Abraham Alexander Hendricks died 18 May 1922 at 56 years old
Mother: Maria Hendricks died 19 December 1935

Perhaps they can provide more pieces of the puzzle in finding out more about John (Giovanni) Manzoni.

Thanks so much for your help thus far!!
