I came to the knowledge that PENSOTTI is one of my family names just this year (2004). I know my mother spoke of them but it did not click with me. My great grandmother is Aurelia PENSOTTI FREASE. The 1910 Point Reyes, Marin County, CA Census shows Aurelia, 19, living with her parents Jacinto and Mary PENSOTTI and siblings, Emelio, John, daughter can't read name, Jacinta, Julia and Eva. The census is missing James (Jacinto). We wonder if the census was wrong in saying Jacinta was a daughter who was 14 instead of Jacinto a son who was 14?

After you get to the larger image, leave your mouse on the image and a colored square may appear in the lower right corner of the image. If you click on that square, the image will enlarge even further and become clearer. I'm not sure if this will work with all computers?
