Searching for Grandi familly

Postby skgrandi » 26 Apr 2016, 06:44

I am researching my husband's family, from northern Italy. His g-grandparents were Caesar and Bianca Grandi, both possibly born in Bologna, around 1875/1880. I do not have Bianca's maiden name, but the name Lucka is on her grave, not sure if middle or maiden. I do have Caesar's parents and grandparents but stuck on Bianca.

Thanks for any info.

In the Bologna marriage index there is a listing for Cesare Grandi - married in 1911 - Act #851.
Unfortunately, the 1911 marriages (Parte I) are missing in the online records so I cannot check and see if this is your Caesar... no other information is in the index (10-year index)

The marriage record of Cesar and Bianca would have her maiden name, and the names of her parents.
Do you think they might have been married in 1911?

Here is the link to the 10-year marriage index for Bologna.
Last column toward bottom...

Nice finds, Marty! :-)

I suspected that Bianca's surname was Lucchi! (Lucka on the headstone)

But... nice to see that her full name (from the birth act) was Bianca Maria Luigia Lucchi :D

Minor corrections:
Comelio was age 37. at the time of Bianca's birth.
The place of residence for Cesare Grandi in the marriage record is Eden, New Mexico.

Here is the link to the Marriage Allegati (attachments)

It includes extracts of the births of the spouses (as Marty posted above), and the first and second publication of the banns of marriage, and the certificate of "no opposition" to the marriage (as a result of posting of banns).

AND***
Here is the extract of death of Eliza Mazzoli (mother of Bianca Lucchi)
Death occurred in S. Giovanni di Persiceto on 5 April 1892.
Parents: Deceased Domenico Mazzoli and deceased Rosa Bartolotti
She was age 41, and the wife of Comelio Lucchi.
