Hi, I am starting a website for the family tree of my dad Rocco Belli,he had sisters named, Bernadine,Lucy,and Vera plus others whos names escape me, and brothers Gerald,and Norman, just two whose names i remember his dad was called Nazarene Belli, and his mum Rosa (maiden name Saragossa) if anybody remembers them or has any stories about them please visit the site at www.pladda.com/belli. My dad sold ice-cream from his horse and cart, I have been told that my grandad ran a small shop which was attached to his house at Broughton Lane Salford. Please visit the site still in its early stages, and leave your memories /stories. Thankyou to you all, Kind Regards, Marie Bernadine Belli

I would be grateful for any info regarding why and how they left this remote village. my greatgrandmother never spoke any english died in 1963 but did revisit picinisco in 1949 with her oldest daughter. other names that appear in her papers and letters which are written in italian which i cannot speak are VALVONA, CROLLA AND DE CARLO. any info would be gratfully appreciated. thank you in anticipation sandra small
