Catalani Family History

Charles A. Catalani (c. 1846 - 1905) was Judy's mother's grandfather, and Elizabeth (nee Kehoe, 1862-1932) was his wife. Charles was born in Italy, the son of Alessandro Catalani and Angeline (nee Menchine). And Angeline was born in England, in 1822, to Bartholomew Menchine and Louise (nee Lilbourne). We know little about Alessandro and Angeline, but we know a lot about Bartholomew and Louise. Their story (including the little we know about Alessandro and Angeline) is on this page:
