Looking for Caminati's

Post by CaseyPromise » 11 Aug 2016, 18:14

Great Grandfather - Giovanni (John) Caminati from Parma, Italy...married to Anna Caminati (surname unknown) from Chicago. Unsure of siblings names, but his brother was a chef at a hotel.
Had two kids- Mary Caminati and John Angelo Caminati.

John had 4 kids with Dorothy Webster- Ann Caminati first, then changed the last name to March due to the bigotry during WWII. The other kids were born John, Janet, Jean, and James March....all in Chicago.

I’m not sure, but I know my great grandfather was born Giovanni and was also called John....maybe to fit into American life better?
If SuanJ is correct above, the little province in Italy is very small and was even more small back when. There must be some relation if your family was also from the Parma/Berceto region.
They could’ve been cousins to my Grandfather or Great-Grandfather.
My mother died, but I have a gigantic Tupperware container full of old old family photos. I’ll see if I can dig up some names.
Want to email me at caseypthompson@gmail.com? We can try to dig deeper from there.
