    Good afternoon!
    I’ve hit a wall, and I’m desperate to know more about my 2nd great grandmothers first husband, Valentino Paganini. All I know is he died in Asiago in 1912-1913, the same year he and my 2nd GG Angelina Nardini’s daughter Rena was born. After Valentino passed Angelina and her mother, Maria Strazzabosco emigrated to America, remarried, and a few generations later here I am. I’ve searched extensively online and have turned up nothing.

I would like to know what Domenico’s brothers names were as this would hopefully help me find this brand of my family. Thank you very much for any help you can provide.

      Notizie per Maria sulla famiglia Vescovi.
      Controllando nel sito web sulla leva militare non ci sono dati su Antonio Vescovi nato nel 1903. Invece risultano i dati di 2 fratelli:
      Vescovi Domenico Antonio nato il 28/04/1889 ad Asiago era figlio di Vescovi Domenico e Rodeghiero Antonia.
      Vescovi Giovanni nato il 15/11/1881 ad Asiago era figlio di Vescovi Domenico e Rodeghiero Antonia.

I have found that Antonio was born in the USA but my grandmother Caterina Basso was born in Asiago January 4, 1905. Is there any information on her family. I am planning a trip to Italy next year and hope to meet some family.
