    My grandmother Bernice Sommacal came to Canada via Castle Garden, New York in 1887. Along with her sister Mary, brothers Alessandro and Bartolo they were accompanied by their uncle Angelo, aunt Maria and grandmother Catarina. I was told my grandmother’s parents, John and Louisa were killed, possibly in a fire. They travelled to France and boarded the ship La Bourgogne, arriving in New York on 20 June 1887. I am travelling to Belluno next month and would appreciate any suggestions or advice you can give me. Please note records from Castle Garden spell their last name Sommouel and Bernice is noted as Gona. thank you

      My grandmother Ida Reolon’s eldest sister was Angelina Reolon (married Levis) who came to the US whereas her brother and sisters went to Argentina. My grandmother Ida Reolon met again her sister Angelina around 1968 when she came to the US to accompany her daughter and family who had transferred here.
