Fanino

Postby jmb44 » 19 Sep 2013, 18:21

My Grandmother lists Lucca as her last residence on Ellis Island records, but a place called "Fanino" on naturalization records. Fanino doesn't seem to exist. Found Fanano, near Modena, but no Fanino. Anyone know if there is a Fanino near Lucca?

Some possibilities based on the naturalization document you posted.

There is a frazione (village) called Fagnano in the town of Lucca; and a frazione called Balbano in the town of Lucca.

Thank you. That is very helpful. These old records are so imprecise. I will try the comune of Lucca. There is also a Barbano area of Florence, but it seems more likely that the couple lived nearer to one another to meet and marry.

Here is the birth act of Guglielmo Braconi, born November 5th, 1871:
https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.3.1/T ... 1484154364

Birth was declared on day 8 by Teresa Ruganì, daughter of the deceased Giovanni Domenico and wife of Giovanni Domenico D'Angelo, 70 years, housewife, living in Pozzano hamlet of Lucca, in the place of child's father, who was away for his business. What is weird is that father's name is not mentioned (maybe the Registrar forgot, as father usually was the declarant).
Mother was Agata, daughter of the deceased Lorenzo Cozzi, and the child was born in parents' house, in Pozzano, precisely in the place called Braconi (same as surname).

The side note states he married Maria Battaglia on October 27th, 1900 (not the same date as on naturalization records).
In the ten-year index father's name is reported as Francesco

Hello Rosi,

M Guglielmo Braconi, born in Balbano, Lucca in 1871. His father was Francesco Braconi, his mother was Agata Cozzi. Guglielmo married Maria Battaglia ( daughter of Giocondo Battaglia and Maria Landucci) in 1900. The immigrated to US in 1901. His son, Frank, married Clara Lucchesi, the daughter of Giuseppe Lucchese and Carolina Batori. I have been told over the years that some of the family immigrated to Argentina. Is it possible that Giuseppe and Francesco were brothers?

Mi abuelo is Basilio Braconi y vivio en Cordoba, Argentina, su padre, Angel Braconi tambien nacio en Lucca, Italia. Creemos que en 1856. Angel Braconi estaba casado con Adelaida Luchesi.
El documento de defuncion dice que nacio en Barbabo, Lucca, pero no podemos encontrar Barbao...
Estamos en comunicacion con la comuna de Lucca para ver si pueden ayudarnos a encontrar su certificado nacimiento.


English version:
My grandfather is Basilio Braconi and he lived in Cordoba, Argentina. His father, Angel Braconi was born in Lucca, Italy. We think he was born on or about 1856. Angel Braconi was married to Adelaida Luchesi.
Angel Braconi death certificate says that he was born in Barbao, Lucca, but we can't find any town called Barbao.
We are currently reaching out to the Lucca Municipality to search for his birth certificate.
