Hi, I saw your posting this morning. My husbands grandfather Emilio Dal Poggetto is also from Pecari. We know a bit about him, but not sure where there may be a connection. Emilio was a colorful figure owning several bars in the Sonoma, Santa Rosa area. He was a bootlegger. He had several younger brothers, but I'm not sure if he had sisters. According to public records, Emilio was in the US in 1902, he was 19. I can't find his original voyage on Ellis Island records. My mother in law, Emilio's youngest child died a few months ago at the age of 86. There are still two older sisters alive. They can't remember too much considering their dad and mom died over 70 years ago. I would love to see any info you have on Amelia. My husband and I are suppose to be in Italy in April 2010. We would like to find as much info before we go.
