Its been quite an exciting (& very hot) 4-5 days
I finally got round to doing some “Tognoli” digging.
Using the link I had bookmarked about 3-4 months ago Pavia, Lombardy, Italy, Civil Registration Records, 1866-1937 I whittled down to the records I wanted (they’re a browse only set of records)
Province – Pavia
Locality – Villanterio
Record Type – Indice Annuale Nascite
I looked though the images year by year (1867 to 1885), downloading any records with the “Tognoli” name on. Found eight others with the name & who could be siblings to Giuseppe Pietro Tognoli (aka Joseph Peter Tognoli).
Then today with the help of one of my Facebook Genealogy groups, Italian Genealogy I managed to hunt out the Familysearch records I wanted, (even if it did take practically all day) Was really hard, I just couldn’t understand why I managed to find two of the possible siblings for Joseph in one of the record sets but not the other.
Was on the verge of “ripping my hair out” & giving up, but I didn’t, I HAD to find them (determined face), By the time I managed to find them, it was 6:30pm, so was a very successful day.
Here’s Joseph Peter’s (or should say Giuseppe Pietro) birth record
(Its in Italian, have asked a facebook buddy in one of my Genealogy groups Guild of One-Name Studies to translate it for me)
That’s all for now, so till next time, stay tuned for some more Ancestry Adventures!
