Sant Punzo Canavese or Valperga?

Postby Nataliej » 13 Jul 2014, 02:13

I am searching for more information on my great grandparents. The 1930 US Census lists my great grandfather as having been born in Sant Punzo Canavese on 20 June 1888. My great Grandmother was born in April of 1891 in Valparga Italy. I do know that they grew up close to each other. But my grandmother says her father was actually French. I was wondering if Sant Punzo was in Italy or France?? I have found two different spelling of his last name Luscieto or Lussetto. Not sure if that helps or not. Many thanks! This is fascinating!

I wondered if the spelling was wrong on the Sant Punzo. So they were very close in distance then? Is there actually what I would call a 'town' in the U.S.? Or is that a region. I did find just some information that my great great grandfather was the mayor of Valperga his name was Luigi Vallero and supposedly he also conducted a 60 piece orchestra. That's all I know about him
