Stefano Branca

Post by stumpeditaliano »

Hello,

Looking for any relatives. His wife is Maria Scala, he died I believe 1891 or he was born 1891. I saw the grave with his year but am not sure if it is the birth or death year. I believe he is from Milan.

Thanks so much in advance

Where did Stefano Branca die? Children? Which, when, where? Parents' names?

Sorry for the delay, I have had some personal issues and haven't been around lately. I also haven't been having much luck with the Branca side of the family. But, I am back at the family history journey.

Suanj,

Some great information here, more than I had before. Thank you so much.

Were you able to find and further information a little further back? Maybe Stefano's aunts and uncles related to his father Bernandino and Carolina?

Hi abt Bernardino Branca sr,

he was born in Pallanza (currently in the province of Verbano-Cusio-Ossola .. but in the past the province's borders and the province's names was different ). The his parents, from what I read, coming from Cannobio also currently in the province of Verbano-Cusio-Ossola...


His profession was a manager or proprietor of a coffee bar… and self-taught pharmacist.. by this passion invented the Fernet-Branca liquor. Which is usually added by Italians who appreciate it, in small doses in espresso coffee which is drunk at the end of a hearty lunch

in Italian Language the word ids "caffettiere" and meaning who prepare coffees at the bar.. but he was really proprietor in Pallanza and his bar was named Caffè del Portighetto/Portichetto (Portighetto/Portichetto bar)

He married in San Sebastiano Church in Pallanza, on 23 May 1831, to Carolina Erba, also born in Pallanza on 3 Feb 1806, daughter of Bernardo Erba and Maria Cadorna. Carolina died in Milano on 1893.
On line are no the Church records of San Sebastiano, so it is no possible to find the marriage record, by that to know Bernardino's parents… Because are on line the civil records of Pallanza from 1806 to 1813
http://dl.antenati.san.beniculturali.it ... io-Ossola/
and the San Leonardo and Santo Stefano churches of Pallanza, from 1838-1865.

http://dl.antenati.san.beniculturali.it ... io-Ossola/
http://dl.antenati.san.beniculturali.it ... io-Ossola/

I believe that the some child maybe was born in Pallanza.. it is a my idea.. online no all is very right…. I cannot find nothing abt Bernardino parents or siblings, because the only source could be the marriage on 1831 and to descover the parent's names, and then to search the Church records abt the Brancas having same parents.. so long and it is no possible… best regards,
suanj

suanj thank you so much! This is alot of great information.

Can you help with finding anymore information out about Stefano's brothers? Luigi and Giuseppe? Also, maybe his kids as well.

Do you think I could try and contact the church for Bernardino's records? I have never done that before but if you think it maybe a possibility I will definitely try.

Are you in Italy now? How are you doing with everything going on? I hope you and your family are being safe!

Thank you so much again for all your help! :)
