I am doing research on the Dioli Family. I live in California and any kind of help would be greatly appreciate.

Dioli, Martin
b. 6 Aug 1897 Ponchiera, Sondrio, Italy
immigrated to the United States Nov 1920

Father: Nicola Dioli b. abt 1860

Mintylamb,

I found a referecne for a Roselyn Dioli on this site:

http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cg ... d=10220922

she was born on Dec. 12, 1927 and died on Nov. 7, 1934, do you believe she could have been Martin's daughter (Rosalie Violi on the 1930 census manifest)?

Laura

Edit to add details:

As Martin's wife's maiden name was Bongio I found out that the Roselyn on the Findagrave site was correctly the daughter of Martin....

From Ancestry.com:

California Birth Index, 1905-1995
about Rose Elena Dioli
Name: Rose Elena Dioli
Birth Date: 22 Dec 1927 Gender: Female
Mother's Maiden Name: Bongio

and:

about Adrian Richard Dioli

about Lidia Elizabeth Dioli

Is this the correct family?

Thank you so very much for your help.

I do have some of this information but not all of it, so again thank you.

The person that I am doing this research for is wanting to find out the history of the family before they came to the US. I have done research in Canada, UK, US but never before in Italy. Martin Dioli is her father and she is looking for information on her father's side before coming to the US.

I just joined this site and again would like to thank you for your help.

I have loads of pictures and reading of tombstones of Italian families buried in Holy Cross Cemetery in Menlo Park California

I would be happy to share any of this information.

Dear Mintylamb since you state that you have not done much research in Italy, I thought to refresh your Italy genealogy research abilities by referring you to
www.angelfire.com/ok3/pearlsofwisdom/fr ... earch.html .

Hi Louise,

as Ponchiera is a fraction in the Comune of Sondrio, you should try to contact your nearest family history Center as they microfilmed the Civil Registrations of the town of Sondrio (period 1866 - 1929):

http://www.familysearch.org/eng/library ... o+civile++

You might be able to find the certificates...

Here is the link to find you nearest center:

Good luck!

hello!

local name in puncèera (ponchiera) for dioli is diöö

dunno if the family is autochthon from sundra (sondrio) area, i do not exclude they were cathars refuged here centuries ago from northern central italy because of eresy issues, but it's just a mere hypothesis without solid foundations

next time i'll go to the cemetery, i'll look if i'll find nicola dioli and elisabetta bordoni in the ossuary

bordoni (burdun) is also the name of a neighborhood of puncèera where lotsa diöö puncerask (dioli of ponchiera) had their vineyards and farms

if you'd like puncèera's photos, just let me know your e-mail
have a nice day

I also am looking for information on the Dioli name. From what I know, I think the Dioli originated in the small village of Caspoggio, Provincia di Sondiro. Does this help in your search?

Hello! I have a similar story to martin Dioli. I am from Argetnina an we are searching for dioli family to build the genealogy. We know about a person called dioli who came from sondrio (Italy) and after went to the North, probably to U.S.A. because he loved it and he was named "crazy of California". Please contact me.

hello! the last I knew is tha dioli family came from caspoggio, and valmalenco (valtellina-sondrio). Andrea (a man) and his brother (unknown. calles "crazy of California") came to province of Santa Fe (Argentina). Their parents were dioli and bordoni (the mother). That brother is a misthery.Later he maybe went to north of the country. There are lots of dioli.

I am the daughter of Martin Dioli who came to Calif. in 1920. I don't know where you got the idea that he first went to Argentina. Not true. And I don't know where you got the idea of "crazy of Calif." That is very strange. But yes, there are quite a few Diolis in the US. Many are located in the east coast around New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Maryland. The ones in Calif. are of the same family and the grandchildren of Martin Dioli. Martin married Rina Bongio and had three children.

Andrea Dioli is Martin's brother but did not come to Calif. nor did he go to Argentina.

If you want more information, let me know.

Dear Lydia, Are you sure of that? Andrea Dioli was my grandfather. He is buried in the cemetery of my city. The last I knew is that his brother and him came to Argentina to work in Santa Fe Raiways. The surname of their mother was Bordoni.Later Andrea went back to Italy. There he married and came again to Argentina to live forever. Years later my grandfather (Andres Dioli) was born and others sons too. And later my father too (Rodolfo Dioli). Maybe, we are telling about two different men.

Dear Elisabet: Well I would not be surprised that there could be many Andrea Diolis. But the one I am thinking of is buried in Sondrio, Italy. He had three children: Bruna, Delia, Luigi. His father was Nicola Dioli living in Ponchiera and his mother was Elisabetta Bordoni. I do know that in Caspoggio, there are many Diolis but Andrea originally came from Ponchiera later settling in Sondrio. He died sometime in the 1940's I think. He was born in 1895.
