Looking for the origins of my great-grandfather, a former priest named Nicola Valsi.
I am researching the origin of my grandfather, named Nicola Valsi, born around 1857, son of Angelo Valsi and Anna Luisa Ferri. We do not know the exact place of his birth. Was a priest for twenty years and for reasons that only he could explain to us, left the religious life. He met a girl, the daughter of a cantinier called Vincenza Parisi, married her and came to Brazil in 1895. He was no farmer. He was an educated man, so he taught in schools, cities of São Paulo. I would love to know his life story in Italy. Where he studied for religious training? Province and city that he was? We know he was a noble man of great wisdom.
If anyone knows these names please contact me!
