Today’s chart – Giuseppina Ronci, born 18 Jan 1900 in Nocciano.
Giuseppina comes from the Domenicantonio Ronci-Maria Giuseppa di Virgilio line (her paternal great-grandparents – top right of the chart), except a few of their children were born before they got married, and many of the descendants of those “figli naturali” have the name “Ronci”, “di Virgilio”, or “di Virgilio Ronci”. The last names vary from record to record. Meanwhile, since they got married before 1809, and Maria Giuseppa di Virgilio’s death record contains no parental information, it’s been a bit of a puzzle to try and figure out exactly who her parents were. The only helpful resource I have are the baptismal records that I got on my trip to Italy, in which I have found only one record that matches up well – born 08 Feb 1780 in Nocciano, to Marco di Virgilio and Lucia Marcucci (my direct ancestors – not a common couple in the Nocciano records because they only had one other surviving child, Gemma di Virgilio, wife of Nicola di Meco and mother of Anna Concezia Angela di Meco on this tree). So Marco di Virgilio and Lucia Marcucci are actually ancestors of Giuseppina Ronci (the topic of this post) in two ways.
I’m hoping to post a new index of Alanno records in the next few days so stay tuned!
