Re: Bianchetta/Cavaletto Family in Illinois
Domenica Cotella Bianchetta was my great grandmother. She died in 1949 in Joliet, il and is buried with her second husband Frank (Francesco) in Braidwood, IL. My grandfather was your great-grandmothers half brother (Peter). I travelled to Salassa, IT in 2002 and met many distant cousins. I also obtained a lot of baptistry records. Your great-great grandfather Serafinifounded the Salassa philharmonic orchestra which is nationally acclaimed. Salassa has a website and is a wonderful place to visit. it is located in the foothills of the Alps.
