I am interested in learning more about my family geneology. My name is James Martin Pedrotti b 1969. I know that my family history takes us back to Northern Italy/Switzerland as we were dairy farmers. My grandfather, James Melville Pedrotti, is from Northern California, near Marysville. I have relatives in Concord, Rodeo, and Crockett, CA. The Pedrotti Ace Hardware store in Benicia, CA. was originally started in Crockett. I have more names and information accessible, however, I have only been able to trace our history back to my great grandfather. One last point I wanted to make; Seven years ago, my sister gave me a family coat of arms which read "Pedrottini" instead of Pedrotti. Does this have any significance?
