    Hi, we are trying to locate information on our Great-grandfather, Antonio Valeri (Valery). He was born around 1833 and immigrated with his family to Brazil in 1888. Names and approximate dates of birth are:
    Luigia Scopel (wife, born in 1841), Carlo Valeri (son, born in 1865), Bellino Valeri (son, 1867), Berenice Valeri (daughter, 1871), Tullio Valeri (son, 1873), Ettore Valeri (son, 1875), Ugo Valeri (son, 1877), Ida Valeri (daughter, 1879) and Emma Valeri (daughter, 1882). This information was obtained from the very limited immigration record when they arrived in Brazil and ship passenger list. Any information you may have or how to obtain would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much! Walter
