    I will be traveling to Conco in April 2020 and I am interested in finding information about my grandparents. Paulo Schirato and Maria Lucia Fincata Soster. I have some limited information and the name of the ship they came to America on. I hope I will be able to track down more information about them when I make my trip. Any help will be appreciated.

    My wife’s grand parents were Antonio Domenico Cappellari and Catterina Colpo. They were born in Fontanelle and were married at Conco on November 8,1899. Antonio was born October 28, 1868. His father was Giovanni Battista Cappellari and his mother was Antonia Brussello. Catterina was born August 24, 1877. Her father was Giovanni Battista Colpo and her mother was Corona Bertacco. How much further can these individuals be traced? How are these individuals related to Pope Gregory XVI?
