Welcome to the O-Blog

This is where you will find regular updates and news items which have particular relevance to the lives and times of our Ottolenghi/Ottolangui ancestors, the communities in which they settled, those in which we grew up, and the things that have influenced them and us through the generations.

We found our ancestral Ottolenghi family living, in the early part of the 18th century, in the city of Livorno in Tuscany, where Menachem Emmanuel Ottolenghi son of Meir Ottolenghi, married Judica de Valletro in 1719. They had a large number of children including David, born in 1734. David eventually left Italy for England and arrived in London in 1776 with three of his children who in turn started the Ottolangui dynasties that still live in England and those that emigrated to settle in Australia, New Zealand and elsewhere
