Pesci ancestry

Postby tapeduzzi » 23 Aug 2016, 02:56

Through your assistance with identifying specific filmstrips I have found most of my grandmother's family (Ferrari and Gatti) from Branzone-Valmozzola. But my grandfather's family was not on the film. He lists Berceto as his last residence on the ship manifests. This is the information I have: Giuseppe Pesci 1881-1925, father is Enrico Pesci Abt. 1860-1925 and his mother Filomena Manferdelli, abt. 1860. He has a brother Agostino 1887 who come over in 1905 but I can't find what happened to him. I am looking for his family in Italy and Berceto is all the info on place that I have. Any help would be gratefully appreciated. My private e-mail is or here on the message board. Thank you, Teresa Peduzzi
I searched churches in Solignano and Berceto at ... =Solignano, Solignano, 43040, IT
How do I select a film to start with when I have so little information about exactly where he is from.

Have you tried to get the birth certificate by the city of Berceto?
