Hello Chuck,
I'll give the letter a try.

Hello friend Charles,
It was very pleasant to receive your communication; I am responding willingly. I saw the photo of your very beautiful dog. I hope you understand that in my profession I take care of animals. I am a veterinarian and I can tell you that your Siberian Husky is very good looking. What do you do? What work do you do? You wrote me that your father died in 1995. My father also died in the same year, to be exact on 08/03/95. My father was born 12/10/1912 in Montefusco where we are and where papa was a farmer. He had a small farm and lived in the country with many small and large animals. When my son returns from the US I will send you a few pictures of our village and of my house. I do not remember if I told you but I am 57 years old; my wife Maria Lucia is 50 and my children Antonella and Emilio are 18 and 16 years old respectively. Good bye friend Charle. Until next time.
P.S. I continue to always search for documentation regarding the genealogy of the Parente family.

Hope this helps. And if I've messed up would someone please correct my mistakes.

Biff

Angela can do a much better job on this because I am just learning Italian, but this is more or less what it says, with, I am sure, a few mistakes!

Whoops, sorry, I did not see that Biff had already translated and then I hopped on board. I had saved the letter to work on when I took a break at work and then posted it without reading the other reponses.

Anyhow, I am so happy that you have made this connection. It is wonderful! I hope that one day the same thing will happen for me.

Poipuo4,

No need to be sorry. I needed the practice and your translation pointed out a couple of errors I made in my translation. I'm finding that my efforts over the past couple of months at writing and reading Italian using various online resources has helped my comprehension tremendously. If practice doesn't necessarily make perfect, it certainly makes things more understandable.

Best,
Biff

Hello Last,

I took another try....here it is. Enjoy, Angela


Hello dear friend, I apologize for saying dear but I am starting to get to like you, as we are family after all even if we are distant. In some sort of a way our origins are similar, me being a farmer’s son and so are you. It is an honor to be a farmer and the best fruits truly come from the earth. Personally, I am sorry that you are not able to translate my writing but the same thing goes for me and as soon as my son returns from the United States it will be different for me. He is quite good in translating and this is also why I gladly sent him to my brother’s in Boston. Who knows, perhaps when he is old enough he will going to the US to study – this is both our dreams. Say Charles, have you ever been to Italy? You know, I have forgotten to tell you that I have four horses, a donkey, thirty dogs, two pigs, twenty chickens, two turkeys and many cats in my little farm. Greetings (in Italian this can also be singular) and talk to you again, Gerardo.

Hello Angela, thank you so very much for translating the e-mail from Geraldo. This is an exciting time for me to be in contact with one of my relatives in Italy. You are making it possible for me to talk to him. Again thank you.

Ciao!
Chuck

PS. Doesn't Geraldo have many animals on his farm?

Hi Angela, how are you. I am fine. I received another letter from Graldo. I tried to translate it using the computer program, but again it doesn't make much sense. If you have the time, could you please translate it for me.

Many thanks.
Ciao!
Chuck

Ciao gentilissimo Charles, non ho risposto
subito alla tua posta perchè Sabato e Dominica non sono stato a casa,lo
faccio subito questa mattina di Lunedì 23/07/2007. Allora ho avuto modo
di guardare tutta la documentazione in tuo possessa per ciò che
riguarda la famiglia Parente, io mi stò interessando seriamente e stò
cercando tutte le informazioni possobili. quello che posso dirti adesso
è che il giorno 04/08/2007 verrà un parente da Milano dove si è
spostato per motivi di lavoro e che io ho già preso condatti con lui il
quale dovrebbe essere il figlio o il nipote di Ciriaco, questo lo
saprò appena riuscirò a parlare con lui qui a Montefusco e da quella
data sono sicuro che molte cose sapremo .Veramente io lo spero tanto
per te e anche per me. Come ti scrissi l'altra volta appena tornerà il
mio ragazzo dagli Stati Unuti ti invierò le foto della mia famiglia.ti
saluto a presto sentirci Gerardo.

Hi, Last,
This is very fun to follow the story that you have going on here! I tried my best to translate this, but as I said before, I know only beginner's italian. I have some gaps here in translation. Maybe Biff and Angela can polish it up.

Hello kindest Charles, I did not respond right away to your letter because Saturday and Sunday I was not at home. I do it first thing Monday morning 7/23/07. Then I have a way to look at all of the documents in your possession for us that regards the Parente family. I am seriously interested and looking for all the possible information that I can tell you now. On 8/4/07 I will see a relative from Milan where he moved for work (not sure about this part) ... and I have contacts with him in which he ought to be the son or nephew of Ciriaco, something about talking with him here in Montefusco and of this information we will know many things. (Maybe he is saying that this guy will know a lot of information about the family) Truly I hope as much for you and also for me. As I wrote to you the other time, when my boy returns from the United States, I will send you a photo of my family.

I hope to hear from you soon.

Ok, Last, sorry for all the mistakes...but I hope you get the general idea.

Poipuo4,
I can't do any better than you have with the email.

Chuck,
You're very fortunate to have someone in Italy who is interested in keeping in touch and also in researching the Parente family history.

Best,
Biff

Hi Biff, Yes I know how lucky I am. This is rare that I have found a relative that is interested on genealogy also. I am very excited about my find and also the future information that my come from our conversations. The help I have received from all of my friends on the web site has been wonderful. I could not have gotten as far as I have without all of your help. We are truly a family.. I hope you all are as excited as I am. Thank you for being there and helping me in my search.

:D

Ciao!

Poipuo4,

You are doing great for being a beginner.....I think you are being too modest.

Great job!

Chuck, keep those email coming, we are all interested in knowing how it continuous.
