Help translating email to cousin

(Her Name),

Upon searching for (family's name) living in (town name), I found your name. You see, my grandmother is a (family name), and her family is from (town). I am interested in finding relatives in Italy. My great great grandfather was (GGGrandfather), born 1880 in (town). The son of (GGGGrandfather and GGGGrandmother). He came to America in 1902, but he had two brothers and a sister who stayed in Italy. They were (Uncle's name), (Uncle's name), and (Aunt's name). (Uncle) was born around 1885, and fought for Italy in World War I.

I don't know anything more about Francesco. Angela was married to a man named (Uncle's name). Do any of these names sound familiar? Any help you can give me is much appreciated.

Yours Truly,
(My name)

I have been offered forum letters, but these don't contain specific information that I want to give her. Thanks for anyone who can help.

(Her Name),

Sto facendo una ricerca genealogica sulla famiglia (family's name) in (town name) ed ho trovato il suo nominativo. Vede, mia nonna è una (family name) e la sua famiglia è originaria di (town). Sto cercando parenti in Italia. Il mio trisnonno era (GGGrandfather), nato nel 1880 in (town). Era figlio di (GGGGrandfather) e di (GGGGrandmother). Venne America nel 1902, ma aveva due fratelli e una sorella che rimasero in Italia. Si chiamavano (Uncle's name), (Uncle's name), e (Aunt's name). (Uncle) è nato attorno al 1885, ed ha combattuto per l'Italia durante la Grande guerra.

Non so altro su Francesco. Angela si era sposata con (Uncle's name). Qualcuno di questo nomi le risulta familiare? Ogni aiuto che mi può dare è veramente gradito.

Cordialmente,
(My name)

This Italian looks pretty bad to me, but here is my best effort:

Hello, how are you? we are family..we ask ourselves but how old you are? Where exactly did your great great grandfather live, do you know? what do you do again? what kind of work do you do? greetings from all.

It was sent via Facebook, so it was casual writing. My family is the same way! :lol:

Thanks for the help!
