Can't find any information where my
gGrandfather, John Baptista ZUCCA, came
to the United States (possibly from Lake
Como area). His wife Geovanna (Tinnitti)
ZUCCA was found to be buried next to her son,
Peter ZUCCA, and his wife in California.

Any information on the ZUCCA family would
be appreciated. Will share information.

Have cousins Chester "Chet" and Jimmy Zucca in my family line. Both lived in California many years. Jimmy retired in Arkansas and I believe died there in the mid 1980's. The Zucca's are related through the Odonetto line in my family. Odonetto's arrived in US in the early 1900's and settled in Arizona. I believe there were Zucca's with them for a time in Arizona. The Odonetto's were from Sale Castleneuvo, Italy, No. of Turin. Have some info on Zucca's also in that area. Someone has researched the Odonetto-Beardo line in (Mormon site), and there is a Zucca connection there. I tried corresponding with her but received no response. We may be of help to one another, even though it seems the lines go different directions. Stay in touch.

I am a great-grand child of Pietro Beardo (born Turin, IT) and Angelliana Odonetta (born Compo Canavessa, IT). I believe they were married and lived in Starkville, CO and Globe, Az. I would be happy to share more info if this seems along the right lines.

Hi, My Grandfather was Lorenzo Beardo your great grandfathers brother. They were from campo canavesse, italy. Yes they were in Globe, Az and then I know my grandparents Lorenzo and Domenica Beardo moved to Los Angeles where my dad was born. I have a picture of the boat Pietro and Lorenzo came over on and a copy of their boarding pass. They had like 30 dollars on them. I believe my grandmother came over here and they married in 1900. They knew each other in Italy, she came from a town called castelnuovo nigra, It. The towns were very close to eachother. My dad had an older sister and brother, Lena and Aldo. My dad was Harry Beardo. He just passed away in April , 2009 at the age of 90.

I was just looking up there home town of Compo Caneveses, Italy because my daughter might be going in August. I was checking to see if any Beardos lived in that area still. I did find on Eliss Island web site the original boarding pass on the ship your g-grandfathers and my grandfather came on. They were together, with 30 in their pockets! Let me know if I can make a copy to send you , Im on facebook charlene faccuito. Looking forward to hearing from you and any info you might have for me. Thanks Charlene

Hi Charlene, I have not looked too hard obviously. However years ago I asked my great aunt about Lorenzo Beardo and she said the only one was her husband, my great uncle Larry, however he was not alive when my grandmother (who as it turns out is your grandfather's niece) was baptized. Your grandfather was the witness and God Father. As you have seen previous entries Roni and Donna are my dad's cousins. Roni has a copy of the passports and Ellis Island entry forms.
