Campigilia Marittima

Post by kiwi-aussie » 04 Aug 2005, 13:05

I am about to visit Italy and wander the village that my ancestors left from to settle in NZ. Can anyone help me in regards to the best way to find early church records or any exsisting family who may stlll reside there. I speak no Italian and need to be as prepared in advance as I can.

My GGmother / Ggfather Santina Gannoni and Carlo Turchi left Livorno in 1886 on the ship Guttenburg and settled in Jacksons Bay NZ.

Any help would be much appreciated

-Chiesa parrocchiale di San Lorenzo
-Pieve di San Giovanni
