One child, Veronica (my gr. grandm) was born Chiesanuova or Borgiallo on 24 July 1867 & another Michele was born 18 Sep 1865 in Chiesanuova or Borgiallo. I’m searching for the names of their two sisters who remained in Italy & probably married there. I’ve been told the records could be in the parish records of Borgiallo. Please advise me as to how I might find this information. I live in St. Louis, Missouri (U.S.) Molte gracie for your help. Susan

      Hello Susan,

      Your post caught my eye when I was searching towns on my husbands Clerico/Formento lines.

      I do not have much on the Formento line but, maybe we can share what we have and put some pieces together. I have a Giovanni Michele Formento b 1865 in Chiesanuova & married Anna Maria Clerico 1886. His father however was Bartolomeo Formento & his father Giacoma Formento. Do any of these names look familiar to you?

      Hope we can help each other out.

      Best of luck – Nancy
