Vicofaro, Pistoia, Toscana

Postby ForzaItaliaPgh » 21 Sep 2010, 17:14

My family always thought we hailed from Lucca, Tuscany, but after doing a little digging it turns out that while my GGF was born in Lucca, his parents seemed to have moved there from Pistoia.

On my GGF's baptismal record it lists the family as coming from "questa parrocchia" (this parish), but on his older brother's record from 10 yrs earlier it says "di Vicofaro (Pistoia)" for the father and "di Torello di Vicofaro (Pistoia)" for the mother. Although, I believe Torello might be my GGGM's father's name rather than a place.

Unfortunately, I have been unable to get back any further as I have lost contact with my Italian genealogist.

While I have found info on Pistoia, I can find next to nothing on Vicofaro. Does anyone know anything about this parish?

Interesting that the church was demolished and rebuilt in the 1930's, I hope that doesn't mean the records were destroyed or lost as my GGGF would have moved in the 1840's.

Usually the copies are not intentionally destroyed, there is always an extra copy saved at the Diocesis, I hope it helps

Ciao Ricbru,

Thanks, at least I should be able to track the records down.

Hi ForzaitaliaPGH!
I dont know you have found the informations you were looking for 4 years ago. Anyway, I originally come from there and my family still lives close to Vicofaro. I'm also writing an essay about that area.

If you still need some informations about this parish, just let me know it! :wink:
