I started this forum hoping to get in touch with other Sebastiani de Porta family members. The family originated in La Porta, Corsica. Of the more notable members of the family was General Horace Sebastiani who served with Napoleon who was also from Corsica. Count Horace Sebastiani was appointedMinister of the Navy by the French King Louis-Philippe in 1830, then Foreign Minister 1932, Ambassador in Naples in 1834, Ambassador to Great Britain in 1835 and finally Marshal of France in 1840. My own Sebastiani family line left Corsica in the 1700's to Austria-Hungary. The family has a rich and very interesting history and genealogy that I would like to share with others.
