Maternal Great Grandmother' Parents

Post by fsambo1410 » 03 Jan 2016, 23:06

I am trying to find out who the parents of my maternal great grandmother were. Her name was Rosilinda Persiani and she was born around 1850 in the area of Gessopolena, Abruzzo (I think). She married Andrea Santa Rocca and she had a daughter Maria Santa Rocca born in 1876. I have tried every which way to find this information but to no avail. I am trying to determine if Rosilinda was the daughter of Fanny Tacchinardi (famous opera singer) and Guiseppi Persiani (famous musician and opera composer) who were married in 1830. Can anyone help? Thank you so much.

These records are not yet on line. Try writing to the State Archives in Chieti. The correct name of the town is Gessopalena.

I would not count on the idea that these are her parents, as they came from very different areas than Abruzzo.
