Hi, I´not the best one for advice, but I will do my best.
I started recentrly so I appologize on my mistakes and of course of my english.

Fist of all you have to start knowing where "Donello" came from, the province, and most important his comune.
On the other hand you have to colect for all the information that you would have , for example;
death certificates will tell you when he or she was born, who was married to, how many children had, and maybe their names too.
Mariage certificates, if the person got merried where you live, will give you clues too.

Internet is very usefull and you can find information in the mormons web site www.familysearch.org. There you have an important guide to find places, record, and clues.

You will see that as you get the info you´ll learn from any litlle thing and any one too.

Please, don´t hesitate on writting me. I´ll help you in all that I can.

good luck !!
