Northern Italy "Viergot?

Postby t.richie » 14 Sep 2010, 02:52

I am trying to find out some info about a little village in Northern Italy that I believe is called "Viergot" which is where my grandfather's family is from. Is there such a place?

Possibly frazione Vergo, Comune di Besana in Brianza, Provincia di Milano, Regione di Lombardia (Northwestern Italy)?

Frazione = http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frazione

An interesting connection can be found in this Wikipedia article http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lecchese concerning the "Lecchese" dialect of Lombardia:

Grammar

In the use of vergót (coming from Eastern Lombard) instead of Comasco quajcòss (="something").
Carmine

My hobby is finding things. Having found most of my own, I am happy to help others find theirs. PM me! :)
