What a truly warm and gracious website you have created! I feel at home already, and have never met you.
No need for apologies - your English is excellent, and most enjoyable.
I came to geneology.com website looking for family/ancestors. My grandparents came over from Italy in the late 1800's. Salvatore Serrao and Catherine Ciliberto Serrao were from Maidia in Calabria, before they emigrated to USA. Some other family names are Paone, Mericanta, Grazia, Pulli, Granieri, and Licastra. Family rumor had it that there were family members from northern Italy, possibly near the Swiss border. That group of family has blue-green eyes & light brown/blondish hair. Do any of these name sound familiar to you? It would be delightful to discover family in your lovely Piemonte area!
Should you holiday in Florida, please let me know!

I love your site. It is so nice to see that Piemonte is finally making inroads on the internet.
My grandmother, Petronilla Rosa Carolla Morino was born in Limone in the stone house across from the church. Her mother was Francesca Riberi, (sister of Sen. Spiritus Riberi. who pushed through the legislation for the tunnel to southern France. There is a monument to him in Limone). Her father was Giovanni Eduardo Morino,
son of Stephan and Rosa Bono or Bona, born in Castelnuevo.
We are just now finding more about my Italian branch as my great grandfather changed his name to Louis Vasaly when he left Italy. Seems he was a soldier with Garibaldi and had to leave the country in a bit of a hurry.I shall keep watching your site for new information.

It shows all of us from around the world how others live. Maybe with more communications of this sort maybe someday the world will be a better place to live.

We've promised her another trip (if we can go along) after she graduates! In fact, Torino is one place I definitely want to visit as my ancestor Dominic FERANDO (born ca. 1790) who later came to America and

changed his name to Joseph BLACK may be from your area. Do you know any FERANDOs?

And I am a true lover of cats, so I enjoyed seeing your animals by the fireside. My children are 23 and 21 - a boy and a girl - and two of my very favorite people in all of the world.

You have a great site. It does not look like a beginners. My friends and I took an Italian cooking class from the University of Utah last year. We completely enjoyed it. Italian is my husbands favorite food. Keep going with you site. Love it! Visit my site. I am new at websites too, although I have been on computer since 1977.
