Comments:  Hi, My name is Almandos Irigoyen. I live in Buenos Aires - Argentina - South America. My great grand Parents were from the Trento zone - Italy (former Austria Hungarian Empire). Their names were. Giovanni Battista Zadra, born in 1850 aprox. and Anna Maria Marinelli, born in 1859 aprox. Giovanni Battista Zadra had two brothers and the three of them left Genoa in 1852. My Great Grand Pa was a railway specialist and Director for the construction of roads, bridges and factories. I have a recommendation letter quoting theses skills, dated in 1881 and signed in the "Comune di Vervó" I learnt a lot about this Zadra family branch in Argentina but I recently aware of these two brother he had. The only thing I know is that my ancestor came to Argentina, the other brothers: one went to the United States and the other one went to Brazil: maybe Sau Paulo. I do not know anything else about the Zadra family outside Argentina. I would appreciate to be in touch with any possible relative. Thanks a lot. Almandos A. Irigoyen

Comments:  There are 3 family names I am researching and seem to be at a standstill. The Corra family, Revo I have back to the 1700's with Maurizio Corra. Do not have a wife's name or parents. Have relatives still there who has given me information from his time on - nothing prior to Maurizio. Epifanio De Manincor, listed in 'A Courageous People of the Dolomites' as leading through Brenner's Pass. Do not know where this trip originated from. Also having a hard time finding this book. Then, the Marchetti's, last address known was from Brez. Was Revo and Brez a part of Austria at one time? Is anyone familiar with the Brenner Pass excursion and where it might have originated? Can anyone point me to a source for any of this info. Love this website - it has helped me tremendously.

I spent time in the city of Trento, which was a really wonderful place, but the really exciting part of the trip was visiting the Val di Non, and especially Arsio and Brez. It was great to see the church where my grandparents were baptized, and to visit with people who had the same last name as me. The food was great. It was the same food that I grew up with and still eat. The people in the towns of the Val di Non were really welcoming to my wife and me. We were invited into homes of strangers who treated us as friends. It was a great experience, and I can't wait to go back. t was the food i grew up with. The people living in the towns in the valley were really nice to my wife and me. It was an incredible experience, and I can't wait to go back.

My grandmother was Lucia Rosa Rossi who was also born in Revo in the 1870's but that is about as far as I have gotten because of the many Rossis. She was the daughter of Maddelena Moscon and Stephano Rossi Maddelena was the daughter of Pietro Moscon. I have no idea of the parents of Stephano. I do know he was from Revo. I would like this last piece of the puzzle. I have been to Revo twice in the past 6 years and hope to go again this year to visit Martini relatives and any Rossi ones I can find. I need some help

I had a Great Great Uncle Guido Stancher who passed away in Tavon (Trento) in the 1960's. I have a World Access to Ancestry.com, and have searched all over the internet for any information. If you could help out, I would be very appreciative. If you need any additional information, please let me know, I would be more than happy to provide it. Thank you so much!

We try to make our activities multigenerational. My grandparents, Fiore (Fred) Zadra and Domenica (Minka) Fellin both came to Seattle from Revò in Val di Non. There is a large group of their descendants in the Seattle area and we have many cousins whose families settled in New York and Pennsylvania.

Their names were Luigi Anhezini and his wife Philomena Furini, and Carlo Speltri and his wife Maria Speltri. The Anhezinis were from Venezia and the Speltris were from Rovigo. I have searched many different data bases and cannot find any information. I have also looked into ship's logs for that time and have not found records of these two families ever arriving in Brazil, but they did. They went to work on the railroad construction in the state of Sao Paulo and there raised a very large family. I am one of many great-granddaughters and am writing the family history.

Many family name that I read in your messages are the same of some friend's name but I'm 34 and I don't live regularly in Cavareno so it's a bit hard to me to help you in detail about old people. My Grandmother name is Pia Piazzi, she is 84 years old and she live in Castelfondo, her father went to USA in 1900 and stayed almost 15 years working in a gold mine. All my others grandparents are unfortunately gone,their names were: Valentino Genetti (Castelfondo), Roberto Pellegrini (Cavareno), Ancilla Battocletti (Cavareno). Maybe someone knows them!! There are recent Italian books about "Val di Non" and peculiars part of it, we grow apples and grapes, we produce milk and cheeses,we speak always "nones" as family language, we go to the church, we work with wood stuff ....in fact nothing has changed in the last 50 years !

Comments:  I'm researching family history and was surprised and delighted to see my great grandfather's picture on your website. He is Leonardo Banaletti. His first wife was Concepta Martini. Their first child was my grandmother - Maria Rose Banaletti- born Nov.3rd 1897 in New Philadelphia, Ohio. Was told Concepta died from the flu and pneumonia when my grandmother was very young. And Leonado returned to Italy and eventually married his wife's sister and then came back to the USA and eventually moved to Colorado. The time line is off as we thought Grandma was 8 years old when her mother died; but according to your info she was 8 when her father died in 1905. Trying to figure out the chronology of events in her life. I have a copy of a photo of my grandma and her family? and the idenifying photographer is "Aultman- Trinidad, Colorado." Grandma looks to be around 12 or 13 years old. I thought the older man in the photo was her father. Based on the info at your site, it cannot be him as he died 6 (?) years previously. Any suggestionsas are welcomed as to how to find more info. on who is in the photograph? And if Leonado did indeed return to Italy before moving to Colorado? My Grandmother married Luigi Martini an Italian immigrant from I beleive from Tuenno, Italy. Thank you.

He lists on his naturalization papers that he was born Jan 22 1872 in the village of Storo, parents Frauk and Elizabeth Scarpari. We know nothing about my grandfather, he was killed in 1927 in a ceiling mine cave in. In 1907 he brought over from the village of Livio Maria Zanotelli, and they were married Jan 1907 with her brother Virgilio Zanotelli as witness, Virgilio then moved to Ohio. Antonio worked in the mines in Darraugh, Pa I am trying to research my grandfathers heritage, as all 7 children are now departed and we have searched all their papers and found alot of identification on Maria, but nothing on Antonio Scarpari...which leaves us wondering if his name somehow got misspelled upon arrival.

The Guernsey 1901 gives his nationality as "Austrian (French Subject)" and his death and marriage certificates give his paraents as "Pierre and Rose" (these are posibly french versions of the names as nearly all records were in french at the time, so the parents may be Pietro and Rosa.

However, I am having trouble with Nati in Trentino and hope you can help. I tried to register a few months ago and it said my user name was wrong but I couldn't figure that out and felt I had followed the instructions exactly. I retried and it told me that I was now suspect. So I left it. Today I retried it and it said something was wrong and I had to contact the "System Administrator". I found no such listing but found what I thought was it, that site was in Italian but gave an e-mail address. I tried to e-mail it and couldn't. So I am wondering if you can help me on this. Thank you! Wendy Negley

Antonio came in 1905 and went to Triadad, Co. I never heard my Grandparents speak of him but after my aunts passed away I got alot of pictures dating back to 1908. There were pictures of Antonio's family taking in Gallop, New Mexico. There was one of the family when they were younger (2 daughters and a son). and another when older but a gentleman was added. A husband? The final pictures were taken in Portland Or. Antonio wasn't in it but the wife was. The last picture was of the daughter of this family. Her name was Lucille. Any BEBER's out there in Oregon?

Names that have surfaced are Inama, Eccher, Rosati among others and they had lived in the "ancestral villages" of Taio and Dermullo and Smeranza. My mother was hazed=eyed and had light brown hair. I am wondering how much Austrian is in the mix (in general) with the Trentini. This may sound like a dumb question but is a way to distinguish Trento from other areas. What I have read about the trentini is very interesting and I'd like to know about some good websites...this is all new to me. I live in philadelphia.

Comments:  Hello, Researching Val di Non for a report for my son in school on Italy. We picked this beautiful country as my grandfather came from the area of Trento (specifically the Val di Non). My grandfather's name was Frank Basil Menapace whose family settled in Clarksville (a territory) prior to New Mexico becoming a state. His wife Amelia Serafin came from Walsenburg, Colorado. We are unsure of where her family originated as she was taken in by an aunt when her parents died. We have traced the family back to an Archbishop Menapace and have found a family crest. I am unclear with a lot of this as my mother has also passed on.

I have been able to trace the Mendini lineage to the village of Pavillo in Val di Non. My great grandfather Nicolo/a was born in 1872. Not sure when he came to the US. His father was Pietro born in 1847. Pietro's father Luigi, not sure of his birthdate. Luigi's father Pietro was born in 1796? I have the name Guiseppe for Peitro's father but that is as far as I can get. Can anyone help? It is thought that maybe my Great Grandfather Nicolo entered the US in Pa. He had a brother named Alphonse who settled in New Mexico, but that has not led me anywhere yet. Where would I search for ship manifest records in Pennsylvania? Vulcan, Michigan is just around the corner, so if anyone needs some information....I can help! Oh yeah, we still have Polenta at deer camp served with red sauce, Asiago cheese and fresh venison.

Since my last post I have discovered that my great-grandparents, PIETRO PEDERGNANA (later Peter Pedegana) and MARIA DOMINICA ALBASINI of Dimaro, Italy, were married in Feb. 1888 in Vulcan Michigan. The witnesses were listed as Charles Marcsini and Mary Marsheti. I am sure that the names are written incorrectly. I believe that the second name, Marsheti, should have been MARCHETTI, but I am not sure. I have no idea about the first. At the time there was an iron ore mine in Vulcan and a large Italian community. I would greatly appreciate any information on the place or the names. Diane Burns

Comments:  Hello again! Since writing on April 14 I have been able to find out a lot about my relatives, much of it thanks to the kindness of the readers of this page. Thanks so much! First, the family name is not Pedegana, but is rather Pedergnana. My great-grandmother was born DOMINICA ALBASINI in 1865, and seems to have been from Dimaro. My great-grandfather was born PIETRO PEDERGNANA in 1860, son of ANTON PEDERGNANA and PASQUA ALBASINI, either from Dimaro itself or the vicinity. We think he was orphaned at a very young age. They were married in Menominee, Michigan on Feb. 04, 1888. In 1889 my grandfather, Joseph was born in Issaquah, Washington where Peter Pedegana (new name) worked in the coal mines. Does anyone know why they would have been in Menominee? I see that there was mining there, but I don't see that it was coal mining. Any help or information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks again!

Comments:  Hello! I have long known that my great-grandparents came from a town in the Tirol region of Italy. Just recently the staff of the Issaquah, Washington Historical Society has located documents that show they were from the town of Dimaro. My great-grandfathr's name was PETER PEDEGANA. He left Dimaro in the 1880's and went to work in the coal mines of Pennsylvania. In the census around that time he listed he nationality as Austrian. He kept going west, and finally settled in Issaquah, Washington, just outside of Seattle. This was a coal mining town at that time. He sent for his bride who was waiting in Dimaro and he became the leader of the coal miner's union in Issaquah, demanding decent working conditions. He was quite a hero. My great grand-mother died of a strange disease that maybe was something like lupus, but it was passed on to all of her daughters, who also died of this disease. I know it baffled the doctors and some of my mother's aunts were studied by the University of Washington, who could not identify this disease. I would love to hear from anyone who has knowledge of my family background. Thanks! Diane Burns

I am unable to find ship records for my grandmother, although on her naturalization application she listed a ship name (LaProvence arrived Nov. 24, 1906) arriving at Ellis Island. I am unable to find her name on that ship; I think she came to America under an assumed name...to marry the man from her town in Trentini whom she accompanied. This man's first wife was said to have died at sea on their way back to visit her family in Trento. My question is this: were records kept for people leaving the port of New york returning to Trento, and where could I access them? If I can prove that this woman died at sea, as it is assumed, then my grandmother assumed this worman's name as she came to America. I can prove that she married this man 2 weeks later when they arrived in Central City, Colorado. Thanks for any advice and help.

I am now trying to find out about my father's uncle, Angelo Martini, born in 1888 who came to the U.S. in 1905 and died in 1918. He never "wrote home" so was pretty much disinherited by his father Pio Martini. What I have been able to find is that he came to Ohio to be with his cousin, Dominico Ravina. According to his WWI draft registration he was married with 4 children but no names were mentioned. He died in Tuscarawas County Ohio and is supposed to be buried in Roswell, Ohio. I am looking for any relatives as there are relatives in Italy who want to know about them. Another reason is that if he did not have sons,the line of Pio (Lau)Martini will die out. Any information would be appreciated.

Comments:  Thanks so much for the website. I love reading the stories and history. I have been searching for my husband's ties to his genealogy for years. Our original last name spelling is MARIGNONI. From what I've been able to research, there were once quite a few of them in the mining areas of Michigan and then Rocksprings, Wyoming. We have been trying to locate any information about John MARIGNONI or his father Vincent. I think John immigrated to the states sometime in the mid 1880's but have been unable to verify or find much more on him prior to his marriage in 1887. All of the men in the family have died very young, except for my husband's father, and therefore we don't have much in the way of stories or information. If anyone has any information about the area they may have come from I would love to hear from you. All we have is a marriage certificate from Michigan that gives the birthplace as Tirol. We would love to visit the area. Thanks Debbie

His mother was Santa LUCHI and his father Giovanni CHRISTINA/CHRISTINO/DI CRISTINA. If anyone has these names in their family please contact me.

Comments:  Very nice web site. A friend recently moved to Vicenza, Italy and when trying to convince my husband to go for a visit, I discovered our friend is living very close to the home of my husband's ancestors. My husband's family came from Smarano. His father is George Recla, grandfather is Luigi (Louis), great grandfather is Giovanni Recla. Giovanni's brothers were Clemente and Valentino. Grandfather Luigi's siblings are Clemento, Evaristo, Raffaele, Carolina, Cesare and Zelinda. We don't have much information on the youngest children. Our family has had contact with the family of Valentino (Clemente's son)in Smarano, and we will hope to visit them in early 2010.
