Nuccia, as far as it goes right now, we are planning on coming to Canada as well. I will bring Mike with me if his mom lets him come. You won't get to meet Jim. He's staying with the dogs. But you will get to meet Iggy - my father. And Mike....the cemetery would be the perfect place for you and I to meet in person. Wouldn't it??? Mr. Green

My mom would have no problem with that, I am afraid to leave all my stuff at home though...I did that when I went to Europe once, cane back all my genealogy stuff was in the attic! And yes the cemetery would be a perfect spot for us to meet, we could go visit all our graves together Mr. Green .

Ok Cathy, Elizabeth. I am hoping you two can bring me the same luck you both brought me last Saturday night. I can vividly recall that Tiramisu I was eating when I got your emails about the Brambilla post..... <sigh>

Anyway, I have not heard a peep from that person. I tried everything - posts, PMs even emails and nothing......

Please, you two, I am dying to hear from this person. Bring me that old Gente luck once more...... I will have my phone with me as usual, just in case.

Sorry all that it took me so long to get back to this. Here is Walt's response.

Hi Gina,

The Brambillas that I am looking for landing in America in the New York. Some
settled in New Jersey and then went to Smithtown, Long Island, New York.

Lorenzo immigrated to America between 1877 and 1881. On 23 October 1888
Lorenzo Brambilla gave oath to his intention to become a Citizen of the United
States. Then in 1911 he received his citizenship after two tries.

According to the U.S. Census he was born circa 1856. And what I understand
his birthplace was Cremora. I believe that his was married twice, but have no
proof. All the children that I have listed came from his second wife, Maria
Zonaboni [Zanaboni]. They were married in 1894 Brooklyn, New York.

I believe that in 1898 Lorenzo and Maria went back to Italy. The reason I say
this is because according to the 1910, 1920 and 1930 U. S. Census they have
their third child Leo being born in Italy on 9 June 1898.

Would send you the complete family tree if you think it would help. I know
that there was another Brambilla family that went West around the
Chicago/Detroit area. I do not know if they are connected. I believe they
came to America about 20-25 years prior to Lorenzo.

Regards,
Walt


Unfortunately this doesn't tell me much. My Brambilla's, judging by the age, would be the parents to his oldest known Brambillas. But I asked him to send me the complete history and I will take it back from there and see what I can connect. Let's keep our fingers crossed, as Riccardo would say.

I still have hope Gina. Whenever I'm looking up information for myself or a cousin I always keep my eye out for the people you're searching for. Never give up.
