1. Any ancestors
2. Any living members of the FRIGIERI family.They would
probably be currently living in Italy.

Q. Where do I go from here ?

Hello Fedora, Welcome to the Forum.

Do you have any dates at all or even an idea of a place?

Maybe if you could tell us the story of how the name is connected to you, it may help us.

FRIGIERI doesn't feature at all in FreeBMD and there are none in the IGI for the British Isles.

On the other hand I do have one on the kitchen :D

Lots of hits for the name Frigieri in Google Books, including for example the fact that Giovanni Frigieri born Rovereto (Trento) Italy on 2 May 1955 was a Mechanical Engineering graduate of the Polytechnic of Milan.

But that would surely be an amazing coincidence if he was the one you were looking for.

2. Any living members of the FRIGIERI family.They would probably be currently living in Italy. Remember, folks: please do not post any details of possible living people on the open forum. If anyone has any details that would help Fedora, please use the PM facility. :)

Thank you,

Hi Fedora,

Can you supply first names and locations. There are one or two on the census returns.

This is a link to surname distributions (http://www.gens.info/italia/en/surnames) in Italy, enter FRIGIERI in the Cognome box.

The Anglo-Italian FHS (http://www.parishchest.com/shop/index.php?cmd=listlinkeditems&cat=D371&breadcrumb=Societies:Anglo+Italian+FHS) has links to telephone books, etc in Italy here (http://www.anglo-italianfhs.org.uk/links/#itaddrs)

He was married I believe to MARIA CARUANA .

He was born or lived in MALTA circa 1740.

Many thanks

HI MUTLEY

Thank you for following up.

My biggest problem is that I do NOT know HOW and WHERE to follow-up on the replies that I receive.

What I need is a SEQUENTIAL list of entries that I have to make and WHERE.

Basically, I am working BLIND!

My great grand father was ANTONIO FRIGIERI

My great grand mother was ,I believe , MARIA CARUANA **

They lived in MALTA circa 1740 **

** These are subject to scrutiny and change

I shall have to check into old letters to retrieve more relevant details.

As I am starting from SCRATCH ,I am unprepared .

Thanks for replying to my initial query.

One of the Friggieri men c1914 was a star soccer player for Floriana FC Malta.

He played in the same team as my mother's cousin the great Jack Herbert also born Floriana Malta.

Two very famous surnames in the town of Floriana. In Malta the surname had two 'gg's

If that's the case I suppose you'll be wanting to get your documentation in order so that you have proof at your fingertips of your relationship to this family.

When you're ready you could then touch base with this guy

Well, if you have managed to get back to 1740 you must have some records or documents. I am not nearly that far back. :(

You start with yourself, then your parents, their parents and their parents. Certificates prove the line. Prior to 1837 you have to look at the Parish Records of the churches your family were baptised and married in.

I do not know anything about searching in Italy or Malta, sorry.
I think Peter has given you a good link so click on that and get in touch with the man who has researched the Frigieri family.

Good Luck

Hi Fedora,
The name Friggieri has its origins in Italy, but it is a fairly common name here in Malta today.
A Bartholomeo Friggeri married for the second time to an Angelica Fiteni in 1679.
The surname Friggieri is in the Status Animarum of Malta of 1687.(Census)
If you are searching the name then I suggest you try.
www.libraries.archives.gov.mt

Be warned that most of the archives for your time will be in either Italian or Latin, as the Knights of St John were in residence here up until 1798, their archives remain here on the island. The National Archives here would probably be your best start.

Cheers from a very 41 degrees today

I have taken the tree back to 1635 but it does not contain your branch. I would love to review your research.
