Locating family information

Post by Sridenour13 » 07 Jul 2019, 22:24

Hello,

My grandfather is from Italy, Lucca specifically.

I am going to be traveling there in a few months and I am trying to track down information about our family.

My grandfather, Angelo Petroni was born in 1902. He had 2 brothers that I know of, Luigi and Giuseppe. From what I am told they either lived or worked at Villa Mansi.

I am not sure if any of his siblings are still living, but I am sure they have children there

Thank you! Do you know of a way to find out if my family is still in the area? Also, is there a way to find out my family connection with Villa Mansi?
