Bertolotto - Waldensian? 1800

As a nation state, Italy has emerged only in 1871. Until then the country was politically divided into a large number of independant cities, provinces and islands. The currently available evidences point out to a dominant Etruscan, Greek and Roman cultural influence on today's Italians.

Bertolotto - Waldensian? 1800

Post by fleacircusdirector » 28 Jun 2006, 01:33

I am researching a Louis Bertolotto born 1800 Genova, his Father is supposed to have been a French Navy Captain called John Bertolotto. He reached London by around 1830 and then moved on to Canda in 1850

I discovered on the following site some detail about the Waldensians and a mention that the Bertolotto name was a common Waldensian one.

Does anyone know how I could confirm if my chap was a Waldensian? Were the Waldensian's emigrating from Italy through France to England at this time?
