    My grandfather-in-law was born in Berceto, according to the info I have been able to find. His name was Gildo (Gilles, Ageli) Cremonesi (Kremonesi, Cremonesia) and I believe he was born in 1886. Any information about his family would be greatly appreciated. Someday I hope to be able to visit Berceto in person, but that seems like it won’t happen for quite a while!
    Thank you in advance for your help,
    Deb Buckholtz

      I am doing research on Gilles and family for a dear friend.
      So far, I can add this info about him.
      Gildo’s birth date is 13 Sep 1886. (from his WWI Draft regis.)
      and his father’s name was Pasquale (from his Death Certificate)
      Have you had any further luck?
      Would love to compare notes with you.
