Giacomo DeGrandis and Santa Ambrosi are my great great great grandparents. Their daughter Maddalena immigrated to Canada with her husband Arnaldo Morianti and their four sons. This is an extract from their civil marriage registration, obtained from the Stato Civile of the Comune of Castelfranco Veneto. It is fairly easily understood by an English speaker – Giacomo DeGrandis, aged 30, married Santa Ambrosi, aged 23 on February 15, 1876 in Castelfranco Veneto, Treviso, Italy. Both were born in Castelfranco. From their ages, you can presume Giacomo was born in 1846 and Santa in 1853, prior to when civil records began to be kept – which was around the time of Italy’s unification – 1861.
Giacomo and Santa are the earliest Italian ancestors I have found so far.
