Hi, I am another Defazio, from south america, and I am trying to find the town of origin of my ancestor, Giovanni Defazio who travelled from Italy, to Uruguay, in S.A., around 1860. I have a strong cinch that he was born in the province of Genova, perhaps in Cogoleto, a little town near Savona and Genova, but I am not quite sure about it!!! His date of birth is around 1841, and his fathers were Valentino Defazio y Maria Schelotti. I have researched all documents from the uruguayan churches and house of records, therefore reconstructing my family tree until now, but I haven´t come up with a single word about his hometown in any of such papers!! If any of you can bring or share some information about this, please do so to my email adress firstname.lastname@example.org Greetings to all of you!!!!
