Hello, Thank you for your response.Yes These are my pages posted on Ancestry.com.The reason for my recent post is that I am looking for my cousin from Argentina whose name is Maria who posted a query about Paolo Foglia from Castelsilano on" the italian heritage .com" site on 20/09/2009. This would be my first contact with that branch of the family. If any one could help I would be so thankful! andrea
