LOOKING FOR POIA

Postby lorie213 » 30 Jan 2014, 22:13

I am looking for my Grandfather Giuseppe Poia .He came to the USA in about 1920. I know my Grandmother was born in Northern Italy in the town of Corenado but I know nothing about my Grandfather before he came to the USA he was also from Italy . Any info would be great.

Thank You

There is only one POIA in today's phone book. Montecchio Maggiore (VI) YOu might start there.
