    Im trying to find family history from Carbonera. My grandfather Pietro Celotto was born in Carbonera on 12 Sept 1881. He married Santa Eugenia Menegaldo. I am interested to find their dates of marriage, birth of Santa Eugenia, and dates of deaths.
    My great grandfather was Pietro Celotto (same name) who married Maria Risigo. I don’t know which town they lived in. I am interested to find dates for them.
    Pietro and Maria had a son also called Pietro. This Pietro is my grandfather. His date of birth is 12 Sept 1881 in Carbonera. He married Santa Eugenia Menegaldo. Pietro travelled to La Tuque Quebec in 1908 and 1912 then to Australia in 1929, then returned to Italy.
    Pietro and Santa Eugenia had a son called Gesulfo Celotto who was my father ( 4 Dec 1908 to 5 May 1986) Gesulfo, his brother and sister Peter (Pietro) and Noemi all emigrated to Australia. They are cousins to the Rigato family.
