I have extensive information Ratto family about Ratto's in California (CA). In Coreglia, IT, my g-g-grandfather and -mother were a Ratto and a Cuneo (given names unknown). They had 4 children in Coreglia: Catherine (Katarina?), Francesco, Rose (Rosa?), and Giovanni B. Ratto. They all emigrated to CA in the mid-1800s. Giovanni B. (1870-1940) lived in Clinton (near Jackson), CA. Francesco Ratto is my great-grandfather (b.24 Jun 1861, Coreglia; d.13 Oct. 1929, San Francisco). Francesco married Rosa Garbarino (1863-1928). They had 5 children: Theresa (b.?, d.1964), Armando (my grandfather, 1889-1926), Malio (1894-1987), Flora (?), and Silvio (?). Armando married Mary Demartini (1896-1979). They had one daughter (my mother), Elena Flora Ratto (1918-). She married Silvio Figoni (my father), and they had 4 children: Eugene Anthony (1947-), Richard Armand (1948-1996), Stephen Frank (me, 1953-), and Robert Raymond (1955-). There are many other Ratto descendants, too long to list here.
Are we related in Italy?
