Hi Sarah....welcome to the forum!!

Lucca is both a province and a town, if your information is correct, you can send for records to the civil records office.....do you know the name of her parents?

Here is a link with more precise info on the town, including town hall address.

You can also check this page for the precise surname.

The name CHERARDI is present in only 3 comunes in Toscana, and very rare.

Using the search criteria of "contains" and the last spelling of "RARDI"..
returned the following results for Lucca:(the LU in the middle stands for the province)

14.76 Lucca Lu Gherardi
9.84 Lucca Lu Girardi
2.46 Lucca Lu Berardinelli
2.46 Lucca Lu Berardinetti
2.46 Lucca Lu Gerardi
2.46 Lucca Lu Gherardini
2.46 Lucca Lu Ierardi
