Castelfondo Genetti Family

Genetti family, Castelfondo, Italy

Several photos from our Italian family! This photograph was taken in the meadows that are part of the Commune of Castelfondo in 1959 or 1960. Info provided by Laura Martellato and her mother Lidia Genetti: From far right: Francesca Genetti (Lidia’s father’s sister/aunt to the Genetti sisters), then a neighbor, Lidia Genetti (Laura’s mother), Maria Genetti (Laura’s aunt/Lidia’s sister) and in front of Maria, the young girl is Luciana Genetti (Laura’s aunt/Lidia’s sister). The rest of the group are neighbors of the Genetti’s. See the three Genetti sisters (Maria, Lidia and Luciana) as they appear in one of my blog posts from Sept. 2014, click here.

The smiling woman behind them is Francesca Genetti, Adriano’s sister. The photo was taken in Sous (on the mountain near Castelfondo), probably during a family outing. Circa 1942.

Note: Adriano was Damiano Genetti’s first cousin, once removed or second cousins with my grandfather, Leone Genetti.

Maria and Lidia Genetti

 

Sisters Maria and Lidia Genetti, daughters of Adriano Genetti and Tullia Piazzi. Photographed about 1946/47.

Webmaster note: Maria and Lidia our my 3rd cousins, once removed. Our closest common ancestors are: Antonio Genetti (1789-1852) and his wife Veronica Panizza (1789-1871). Antonio and Veronica are Maria and Lidia’s 2nd great-grandparents and my 3rd great-grandparents, thus the “once removed” because we are from different generations.

Adriano Genetti

 

Adriano Onorio Genetti “di Lanci” (1899-1963), photographed in Castelfondo, probably in the late 1950’s.

Note: “Lanci” is the sopranome of one branch of the Genetti family, similiar to a nickname given an entire line. The Pennsylvania family of Damiano Genetti were also considered “di Lanci”.
