Santini's from Italy to BC Can
I have previously posted info on this message board,but I have a little more regarding this family.If any of it sounds familiar, please contact me as this is proving to bea difficult line to trace.
--Rosalinda Yerillia SANTINI b. April 18, 1888 in Lucca, Tuscany, Italy.She m. Joseph PIZZI b. May 2, 1877 in Sicily ?.
--Rosalinda's father wasJoseph SANTINI b. abt 1850 in Lucca, Tuscany, Italy and d. aft 1888 and her mother is unknown.
--Joseph SANTINI is the son of Luigi SANTINI b. abt 1830 in Italy d. unknown and Barbara Court PASSI b. abt 1830 d. unknown.
Luigi and Barbara SANTINI had the following children
- Joseph Santini as noted above
- Paul SANTINI b. 1857 in Castagnelli (spelling ?), Italy and d. aft 1919.He m. Josephine ORDINE March 19, 1889 in Lillooet, BC, Canada.She was b. 1872 in Lillooet, BC and d. Sept. 19, 1919 in Lillooet.
Paul owned the Fountain Ranch near Lillooet around the turn of the century, and this is were Rosalinda and her husband Joseph PIZZI came to abt. 1907.
-Eugenio SANTINI b. Aug 16, 1859 in Lucca, Tuscany, Italy and d. Jan 21, 1938 in Lillooet, BC.He married Theresa GALLDUCCI b. abt 1870 in Lucca, Tuscany, Italy.
Paul and Eugenio SANTINI both came to British Columbia abt. the same time.Apparently, there are relatives in California on both the SANTINI and PIZZI side.
There may have been 2 other brothers in this family, Carlo SANTINI b. abt 1870 m. Teresa ?They had at least one son, Roberto SANTINI b. October 9, 1896, St. Andrea, Lucca, Italy and d. April 7, 1966 in Trail, BC.(Trail is were Joseph and Rosalinda PIZZI (nee SANTINI) ended up)
The other is Candito SANTINI, b. abt 1870 in Italy m. Teresa BATTISTONI b. abt 1870 in Italy.They had at least one son, Joseph SANTINI who was b. Oct.12, 1893 and d. Sept. 29, 1912 at the Santini ranch in Lillooet.So there must be connection to this family.Maybe the to men named above are the same and an error was made on the death cert of their boys.ANY help would be appreciated.I do have descendants for some of these people here in BC, I will provide if you are interested, but I am running out of room!
