Da Giau Family in America

I am looking for information and/or extended family of my great-grandfather, Valentino Da Giau, who came to the US from Valle di Cadore, Italy. I believe that he left Italy in the early 1880's and first went to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan before finally settling in Chicago. His name was changed at some point to Dagian, apparently because of how he wrote it. He was born in 1857 and died in 1935 and was one of six children born to Luigi and Giovanna (born Ciliotta). If you have any information I would love to hear from you and share the information that I have.

Have you been in touch with Isabel who has Ciliotta data?

I am looking for the daughters and son of Frank Dagiau. He married my grandfather's sister, Giulia Chiamulera. They were both from Valle di Cadore and settled in Sacramento, California. My parents visited them in the late 1940's, but that is the last contact we have had. I found their death dates in the California Social Security records. One of the daughters has a French sounding married name and may have moved to San Francisco. A first cousin of mine married an Angelo DaGiau. They live in Lima, Peru. If interested, I could find out what his parents names were. He is also from Valle.

I am a Ciliotta

I am a member of the Ciliotta family who emmigrated from Valle di Cadore around the 1910's. My grandfather is Attilio Ciliotta who came to America from Cadore in 1921, his two brothers Emilio and Mario preceeded him a few years before. My family is still in touch with relatives living in Valle di Cadore, our cousins and second cousins. I would love to help in your search, and would love to find out any new family information.

Thanks for your reply. According to the California death records, a "Frank DaGiau was born on 11/26/1910 - dies in Yolo in Feb 1977. Is this your father? The dates don't quite coincide with the one you gave me. Do you know if your father had two sisters? Please contact me directly at
Hopefully we can find a connection!!
