Looking for Catholic churches in Lucca

Postby cometfan79 » 17 Aug 2010, 14:53

My maternal grandfather, Pietro Matteucci, was from Lucca and came to US in 1917. I am trying to locate any Catholic parishes in Lucca where he may have been baptized. Can anyone help me locate the names and addresses of any churches in Lucca?

Lucca, Toscana: Lucca town or Lucca province?
I cannot find a Pietro Matteucci arrived in 1917 from Lucca... the arrival is important because by that you can know the birth town if Lucca town or a Commune in Lucca province

I found only a Pietro Mattiussi( maybe Matteucci mispelled) from Cassiano ( maybe San Cassiano, Lucca) arrived in 1918...
If you can give us more detail we can help better..

PS why you need of a baptism certificate and not of a birth certificate?

I will look at the copy of the manifest from his arrival at Ellis Island and put more accurate details on. Thank you for helping me. Clearly, my memory is poor from what I read and I am so unfamiliar with this process, I am more than just a bit confused. My goal from all of this is to locate the church he was baptized in so that I can come over in 2012 and have a Roman Catholic ceremony there. Thank you, again!
