I am helping my cousin search for the parents of Margareta (Margaret, Maggie) Gilardi nee Guanella. 1854 - 1929 or 1936. Died in Genoa, Wisconsin. She is from and married in Lombardi, Italy. She then moved to Genoa, Wisconsin with husband Giacomo Jacob Gilardi 1850- 1927. Died in Genoa. Wisconsin.
My cousin was always told there was a saint in their family. Clearly, that is Luigi Guanella. I am trying to find their exact relationship, if any. (I would guess they were first cousins or half brother/half sister but who knows?)
As I can't find her parents I can't find out any more...even if they are not related.
Again, I would imagine she was related to one of Luigi's brothers. Can you or anyone help?
