    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?
