Searching for Borelli family

Postby louis41 » 17 May 2007, 03:59

Hi Everyone!

This post is just to get the Borelli name out there in case anyone else happens to stumble on me and wants to join in the fray.

I am the great-grand-son of Celestine Josephine Borelli Ianelli dob abt 1856 & Luigi Ianelli dob 1857. Luigi Ianelli was born in Berceto, Italy and his wife Celestine was from Parma. Her father Joseph Borelli ran an Inn in Parma.

After Luigi & Celestine were married in about 1881, they migrated to Marselle, France. They had 6 children. The children are, Marie, Augustine, Amelia, Louise, Virginia & Anthony.

They left Marseille France, in 1902 & 1903 and came to the US. They settled in Phila.

Their son Anthony P. Ianelli dob 1892, (my grandfather) married Rose Massaro dob 16 Oct 1898 & had 4 children. Celestine Lillian dob 22 June 1917, Louis F. dob 17 Feb 1919, Florence Virginia dob 14 July 1923 & Anthony F. dob 17 May 1932. Louis F. being my father.

My uncle visited Italy in the 1950's and met some of our relatives, so I know their is a part of the family that still remains in Italy. Not sure if it is from the Ianelli or Borelli side.

If you are one of us or know of one of the Borelli family, or the Ianelli family, please get in touch.

Happy hunting and thank you all for your help in my search.

I am related to a bunch of Borelli's in California. Do you know if any came this way? Most reside in the San Joaquin Valley.

Hi Marlene!
The only clue I have is my grand-father's birth certificate indicating that his mother's maiden name was Borelli and a letter from my aunt saying that Celestine's father ran an Inn in the town of Parma. If I find any west coast connection I will contact you.

Good luck in your search.
