Donchi Family

Postby vdonchi » 02 Jan 2008, 01:31

Looking for info on Pietro Donchi, I believe born in Teglio, Italy married to Maria Bettini. I think they had 5 sons, one went to Australia, one to Canada. The only one I actually have info on is Bernardo Donchi born 15 Aug 1880 in Teglio, Italy. Married Angela Marchetti on 23 Aug 1914 in Santa Barbara, CA. Angela Marchetti was born 04 May 1893 in Teglio, Italy. Her parents names were George Marchetti and Angela DeBugilo. Not sure were to go from here since I only have Pietro's name. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks Victoria

Don't know if you have seen this yet. If not it's a good place to start.

From Nuccia's arrival manifest about Giuseppe Donchi it seems that he was going to meet his brother Bernardo in Eprin/Eppin (??) Utah.... :?

Edit: P.S. I think the correct last name of Angela Marchetti's mother is DEBUGLIO

Hi my name is Angel and I am Bernardo Donchi's great granddaughter. My grandmother is Bernardo's daughter. I found that after talking with her that her father had a brother that immigrated to Austrailia. She has/had an uncle in Australia that her brother Silvio met. I also found information about Bernardo's other brothers: Pietro, Giovanni, Guiseppe, Bernardo, Felice. Any info would be helpful.

I would like to know if anyone still comes on here to check this. I am a grandaughter of John Donchi, possibly named Giovanni before he came to canada. I have been trying to search for any info on my family name for a long time.
