I am trying to verify or eliminate a family connection to Alberto GIACOMETTI, the sculptor.
My grandmother was Maria Luigia (Louisa) GIACOMETTI b. 25AUG1902 in Ceres, Italy d. 07MAR1964 in Saginaw, Michigan USA. She married my grandfather Alessandro Pietro Albino POMA in 1922 in Ceres. They came to the US in 1929 with their two children Marta (my mother) and Sergio.

f: Francesco GIACOMETTI b. circa 1836, d. unknown
m: Clara PEROGLIO b. unknown, d. unknown.
As you can see I have two GIACOMETTI lines to research. I know that Alberto GIACOMETTI was born in Stampa, Switzerland. My grandmother spoke of her family visiting Switzerland. I don't know why they would, other than perhaps to visit family(?) since they were poor farmers. I also know that Alberto did spend some time in Italy.
If you have any GIACOMETTI information to share I would appreciate it.
