    Dear Italian Side:
    I live in Houston, Texas, USA. I am looking for direct ancestors of my great grandfather, who was born in Pecco, Piedmont, Italy on December 16, 1851. His name was: Stefano Martino Mabritto. His father was: Martino Francesio Mabritto and he was born in Pecco, Piedmont, Italy in 1820. Stefano had 3 brothers: Giovanni Battista, Giuseppe Roberto and Francesco Gabrielle, as well as 2 sisters: Caterina and Rosa Maria.
    Stefano departed Pecco on October 2, 1869 under passport #183 to France. Eventually he ended up in San Antonio, Texas, USA.
    Could you help me locate his currently living relatives or direct ancestors?
    I would really appreciate your assistance. Thank you.
