Italian surname Corsini
« on: Tuesday 23 February 21 18:08 GMT (UK) »
Hey all, I am looking for Corsini information from the Carrara area of Italy. The information I have is Giuseppe Corsini (Aug 15th 1860-May 5th 1915) born in Carrara. He was married to Genevra Ribolini (1872-1930). Giuseppe had a brother Ariodante Corsini (1872-1942). Ariodante was married to Augusta Bruschi (1875-1930). I have some information on these 2 brothers and their descendants (Giuseppe was my GG Grandfather). The brothers also had a sister, Rosa Corsini who married a Giuseppe Baldini. They had 3 kids, those 3 kids had many kids. That is all I know about them other than they are all from Carrara. They were mostly marble workers. Giuseppe, Ariodante and Rosa's parents were Luigi Corsini and Caterina Strenta, also from Carrara. I am looking for anything I can find on any of these relatives. I have exhausted everything I can find through ancestry and the other search sites. I have hit a brick wall with Rosa and their parents. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks, Eric

garstonite, thank you for your response. My apologies, yes it is typically labeled as Massa-Carrara, in the heart of the Tuscany region. I don't recognize any the the Corsini or Strenta names, but the surnames are accurate for sure. Ive heard most of the birth/marriage/death notices were stored in churches, many of which were destroyed during the war. That would make sense since I haven't been able to find much. I will check out that geneanet site though, I have not used that one before. Thanks again for your efforts.
