There seems to be something amiss with the information supplied here. I spent some time yesterday looking at the online records and found no record for neither Luigi nor Jennie. I did however find the following which is possibly either Jennie herself, or her sister:


Birth No 90: Angela Maria Addezio
Avigliano: Born 5 February 1894
Parents: Francesco Addezio, 32 yo,
Mother: Maria Ippolita Zaccagnini
https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1 ... cc=2043547

I also looked at the marriage records hoping to find Jennie's parents and noticed that there were several years either missing or maybe they are out of order. It would be helpful to see the records/sources from which the information posted here has been extracted.

I've made a start here, so for more information you should be able to work yourself backwards on this strand, from the above marriage record. There is always great help here if you need it. (The script on these particular records is somewhat criptic so hopefully I've deciphered the handwriting correctly.) You've got some fantastic records online at the following places:

Avigliano 1866-1910 approx: https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1 ... cc=2043547

Avigliano 1861-1865: http://www.antenati.san.beniculturali.i ... Avigliano/

Avigliano 1816-1860 approx: http://www.antenati.san.beniculturali.i ... Avigliano/

Avigliano 1809-1815 approx:
http://www.antenati.san.beniculturali.i ... Avigliano/

Civil Records: Palazzo San Gervasio

Postby AngelaGrace56 » 25 Jun 2016, 07:26

This is where you will be looking for your D'Addezio records:

Palazzo San Gervasio 1861-1929: https://familysearch.org/search/image/i ... %3D1483052

Palazzo 1816-1860 approx: http://www.antenati.san.beniculturali.i ... e/Palazzo/

Palazzo: 1809-1815: http://www.antenati.san.beniculturali.i ... o/Palazzo/

The only other child I saw born to this couple was a daughter named Vita Crescenzia:
Vita Crescenzia Addezio 1890 No 721 image 2236: https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1 ... cc=2043547

There may possibly have been a child born in 1892 as well, there was no index and I'm not going to have time to look through all the records individually - there were a substanial amount born each year!!!!

Hope this helps. All the best and come back to the forum if you would like further help, especially with the translations.
