    My grandmother was Luisa Bertucci I think she was born around Pieve Fosciana . I have found my great uncle Bruno and great aunt Anita in the cemetery there but can find no record of her birth. She married Umbrt Landi in around 1910 and they moved around a lot going to Scotland , Brazil and England where she died in 1946 – can you help trace her?
