Do anyone know something about my familiy. I have tried lokaly in Italy (I speak italian), but with no result.
My grandparents were Giuseppe Pellegrini (1886-1943) and Maria (Marietta) Scalvi (1900-1977). They lived in Milano and both died in Milano. Giuseppe was a painter and he was a soldier during the WWI and served the Italian army in Siberia, and was also captured there for some years.
He also went to the accademy of Firence as very young and talented. During the WWII he could not serve the army because of a weak heart and sold miniaturepainting-broches.
My greatgrandparents were Valentino Scalvi (1844-1878, Cossirano, Trenzano (BS)) married to Marsiglia (Margherita)Caloi 1856-?( Meano, Corzano (BS)).
Father of valentino Scalvi were Michele Scalvi. The Scalvi family were for many generations carpenters.
Father and mother of Marsiglia Caloi were Giacomo Caloi and Eurasia Lenzi.
I have a lot of family in Italy (Lombardia) but it is not possible to find out more.
My mother did not know very much of her father (Giuseppe) was not the real biological father, but this was no secret). Her mother Maria Scalvi had 4 siblings: Alessandro who died because of a handicap and Adele, Lucia and Enrichetta.
I hope someone can help me regarding my ancestors.
