    Dear Sir/Madam

    My grand mother is from Settimo Vittone, her name was Lydie Allamanno (1908-2009), she was the daughter of Auguste Allamanno from Nomaglio and Marie Ghirardo, daughter of Mr. ? Ghirardo, an engineer who i was told built the railroad of the Italian Riviera.

    Lydie Allamanno maried Henri Jourdan who lived all his life in Guillestre, near Briancon in the French Alps and where we still have the family house/farm.

    Mr. Ghirardo family lived in Memoria at a place called Novachey where the family house still is and where my grand mother was partly raised (she gave me some pictures of the house).

    The sister of Marie Ghirardo was Adele Pellerey.

    The mother of Marie Ghirardo was born with the family name Mocco.

    I am trying to complete the genealogy of my family on the Italian side (Ghirardo / Pellerey / Mocco). I have the genealogy details from our family on the 3 other grandparents side.

    Any help you can give me and also about existing family left in and around Settimo is very much welcomed !

    Distant family from Italy can contact me. I’ll be happy to inform them about what happened in France. I myself left France in 1982 and established in the USA. Then moved to Asia.

    Very best regards
