Tonight I received a “Wow – I finally found him” note from Jane Giavelli Lauhon. She wrote:
Thank you so much for your hard work and dedication by maintaining your website.
Today I was finally able to find the connection and am very, very happy. I knew this family originated in Italy; I just didn’t know it until today when one of your articles connected us to Giavelli’s in Italy.
My mother’s father, Guissepe Manno, is Italian and I have been wondering how much Italian ancestry I have. Now I can say I am 1/2 Italian!
Thank you again and I am going to keep searching your site to see what other goldmine’s I can find.
