Emilio Luigi Giulianotti married on the 22nd January 1895 in Valdena to Angela Domenica Marioni (1875-1936), This family also moved to Scotland to the Aberdeen, Fraserburgh and Peterhead areas where they raised their family.

Fraserburgh like Stonehaven is a town on the North Eastern part of Scotland. It is a fishing town and is probably why the family settled here where fish was abundant. Fish and Chips had taken off in Scotland at that time and business would be plentiful



1 VERONICA MARIA GIULIANOTTI was born in 1896 in Italy. She married Pietro Venturini on 4th August 1920 just shortly after the First World War in Scotland. They had several children, Anna, Irene, Aldo, Emma and Alice. Veronica died in 1944.

    I used to visit my Granny every summer as a child between the mid 50s and the early 70s. A real highlight was getting a cone or a slider from the Rendezvous just down Forest Avenue. The family were so kind and always chatted, and we were made to feel very special. I can still taste the icecream- the best ever.

    Hello, I’m Fernando Miranda Moscatelli from GIULIANOTTI Moscatelli Bergamaschi line. Below the photo of my grandparents’ wedding (Wedding day Giugliemo and Maria Giulianotti). There is a text in blue that says: “Hello. My name is Maria Teresa Giulianotti. My maternal grandmother was Maria Domenica Giulianotti, daughter of Antonio Giulianotti and Elizabeta Landini.” These were comments that I wrote in Spanish and that now I cannot find on your pages and what I was doing was greeting Maria Teresa Guilianotti and saying who I was and my side of the family. But in the translation they took them to mean that Maria Teresa was introducing herself, if you look closely at the story that is told there and look for my original comments in Spanish, you will see that it is so. I would like to get in touch with more people in my family line, they can find me on facebook as or by my

    Hi, I’m Fernando Miranda from GIULIANOTTI Moscatelli Bergamaschi line. The text written in violet under the photo of Wedding day Giugliemo and Maria Giulianotti, corresponds to a comment that I wrote in Spanish where I said hello: Hello Maria Teresa …. and it told what is narrated there, but it was taken as saying : Hi, I’m Maria Teresa ….. Even in that story I talk about Attilio and his wife Victoria who had come and had a daughter Silvia and then Maria Teresa Giulianotti answered: ATTILIO AND VITTORIA LIVED IN 105 FOREST AVENUE AND ALSO OWNED THE RENDEVOUS CAFE NEXT TO THEIR HOUSE AND THEY ALSO HAD A DAUGHTER CALLED SYLVIA WHOM I BELEIVE IS IN HER LATE SEVENTIES WHOM IS MY FATHERS COUSIN AND LIVES UP IN DEESIDE. This appears as the first comment here which proves what I say. But my comment in Spanish no longer appears. I am interested in getting in touch with more family members, my e-mail is:
