    I am doing the family tree for my brother-in-law and all I know of his great grandmother is that her name was Restituta Vozza from Casalvieri born around 1863-65 according to a census and death record . She lived in Chatham Kent and had two sons.She was not married to the father of both boys. One is a complete brick wall as disappeared after the 1891 census. The other’s life is known being his grandfather. She married later as a single lady in Kent aged 33 and died aged 38 in 1909. I know she had a brother Angelo due to my brother-in-law having a DNA match to the descendant of Angelo. Both marriage records show the father’s name as Philip or Felix (each was written down) and he must have died before 1898 as he was deceased on Restituta’s marriage record. I am surmising he was called Filippo and the cleric guessed the English version. I would love to know who the parents of Restituta and Angelo Vozza were to complete this part of his tree. I have had no luck on Ancestry. Any help gratefully received.

    Buon giorno. I am trying to get my family tree together and have had next to no luck in Canada. My mother (Assunta D’Agostini) was born in Casalvieri and my father (Emilio Porretta) came from Purgatorio. I have both of their parents birth and death, however, nothing before that. I also have their siblings names, birth and death as well. Any assistance you can give me would be greatly appreciated!
