Index of Individuals ( organized by surname )


The Malchiodi and Malchiodi Albedi Families are all related. They trace their ancestry to the 16th century and the area of Bobbio in the region of Piacenza, northern Italy.

These family cards trace the ancestry of several of our Malchiodi Genealogy Project participants. Currently, as of December 1, 2001, the Malchiodi Albedi line is traced to the 16th century with Giacomo Malchiodi, progenitor, whose two sons moved to Bobbio from the area of the Brugneto Valley. The project goal, to trace the lines of other participants to Giacomo, appears more near as more information is shared.

Ancestral information has been provided by:

Rena Malchiodi Albedi della Fraternali
Alfredo Malchiodi Albedi
Ivan Malchiodi
Pascale Le Blanc
Daniel Niemiec for Al Malchiodi
Larry (Malchiodi) Albedi
