I live in Chatham Illinois, just south of Springfield. I know nothing of my Bucci family history. My Dad was not very forthcoming with any information about it either. All i know is im the youngest son of Bernard Bucci, born 1/1/1916 in Benald Illinois. He was the first born of Gaido and Nicholina (Fulgenzi) Bucci. I do know that the US Immigration changed my grandfather's name and I think his real one is Guido. Both my grandparents we born in Italy (I think the Florence area but not sure). My grandfather was very old when i was born and didnt not have much to do with me. The sad thing is I want to learn about my heritage and you now know as much as I do. Also I know even less about my mothers side.. I would love to learn more about it so I can pass it along to my son and daughter and 2 granddaughters.
everyone needs to know about where they came from. So any help would be appreciated.
