I am told that my great grandmother was a Scalvini from Bagolino in the Province of Brescia, but I can't find anything about her family anywhere. I read somewhere that the name Scalvini was "the valley of Scalvi", so I have started to search for Scalvi as well. The only thing I know is that her first name was Santina, but she hated the name and went by Santa most of her life. She and her husband, Giovanni (John) Care immigrated to the U.S. in 1913 and settled in Flint, MI. They were probably married betwen 1911 and 1913.
Do you know anything about Scalvi and Scalvini being one in the same?
