#1: Surname Serafini from Barga Author: Libby, Location: Ontario CanadaPosted: Fri Mar 20, 2015 2:41 am ---- Hi ...trying to find information on my father's family (Serafini) who emigrated to Scotland from Barga around 1900. Do not know my grandfather's first name ...his wife was called Rosa (I believe) ...my father was Olinto Serafini and was born October 1899 ...his older sister was named Julia. Any help in finding out more about my family roots would be appreciated.

My grandfather was Victor who I believe was your father Olinto's brother. I have some info that my aunt compiled, but it is at home and I am at work. I am new to this site...I just joined so I could answer you! Please message me and we can communicate.

Yes... we are related... so happy to meet you. Your grandfather (Vittorio-Victor) and my grandfather (Leopoldo-Poldo) were brothers. My father, Olinto (Tony), was named after our grandfathers' eldest brother, Olinto. You are probably aware, I am in touch with your cousin, Arnold Barnes and have been sharing my research with him ...he has copies of all the records (Italian, Scottish, American) and I am in the process of mailing more. Met with approximately 30 Scottish family members in July and am gradually establishing connections with all the branches (4 out of 8 so far). Have just set up a (closed) family Facebook group to help everyone keep in touch... Barga Serafini Family - Descendants of Antonio and Carlotta (Marchi) Serafini. Elizabeth
