Allessio was born on 21st August 1846.  He was a brother of Eletta Brucciani Quilietti.   He was baptised the same day in the little Church of St. Nicoli”.   His godfather was Alessio Lunelli,  He is my 3rd Great Uncle

Taken in 2005 whilst visiting the little Church. The baptism record of Alessio Brucciani

Alessio was my great great grand uncle.   He married Mariana Conti.   They left for America firstly in the year 1885 and find them in 1908 travelling back.    This was a common occurance with families travelling back and forth to visit their homelands in Italy before finally settling in their chosen destination.     In the year 1908 we have a record of Alessio and his wife Mariana travelling to the USA onboard the ship La Provence.
