From Barbara Mullen, Australia
I have begun to draw together my data on the Mattei family of Cevio, to prepare a story for the descendants of Alessandro Mattei who migrated to Aust in 1855.
His brother Pietro ended up in California I believe. In 1993 I visited Cevio and also had the pleasure of meeting Giorgio Cheda (thank you Giorgio). I was lucky to be able to explore the church records and found ancestors going back to the mid 1700s. If there are any interested in this, feel free to contact me.
