    Hello,

    My great great grandfather was Giovanni Gazzola and he married Domenica Feltre (or Feltrin). His son, my great grandfather was Guiseppe Emilio Gazzola and he immigrated to Texas, USA around the 1890’s. I believe Giovanni had other children (Antonio, Agostino, Vanetino and Caroline). I would like to confirm that these were Giovanni’s other children. In addition I would like to know if he had other children especially a child named Angelo.
    I will be visiting in mid August and it would be great to meet a distant cousin.

    Thank You
    Jim

    Ciao,

    Il mio bisnonno era Giovanni Gazzola e sposò Domenica Feltre (o Feltrin). Suo figlio, il mio bisnonno era Guiseppe Emilio Gazzola e immigrò in Texas, negli Stati Uniti intorno al 1890. Credo che Giovanni avesse altri figli (Antonio, Agostino, Vanetino e Caroline). Vorrei confermare che questi erano gli altri figli di Giovanni. Inoltre vorrei sapere se ha avuto altri bambini in particolare un bambino di nome Angelo.
    Visiterò a metà agosto e sarebbe bello incontrare un lontano cugino.

    Grazie
    Jim
