    My grandfather immigrated to Canada in the 1890′s from Treviso area. He was only 13 and he came into Quebec Canada and settled in Nova Scotia. Louis Bresson is the name but I believe it actually is Bressan but he couldn’t speak English I believe it was changed at that time. He came over to work in the coal mines as did a number of others from this area. Not sure if he was born in Vittorio Veneto or Vedelago father’s name was Domenico I think.

      Hello! I’m your cousin…
      The information on his death certificate said Louis’ father Dominico was from Treviso Italy.
      Wish I could find more info as well!
