My partner and I are trying to trace his family tree. What we know so far Great Grandfather - Giovanni Parisi 1868 - later known as 'Old Jack' Married second wife Maria Grandmother - Lucia Parisi Father - John (Tony) Baker
We are very interested in tracing any of this Parisi family. They owned a lot of land in Scala Italy but Giovanni fled to the UK around 1900 ? Jack (Giovanni) lived in South London and owned Icecream carts. Giovanni adopted a lot of children whilst in Scala unfortunatly we are unsure of any of the names. A Family of these children were taken in when Giovanni's friend 'disappeared'.
Please let us know if you can help us with any information.
