You're welcome.

Did you notice that Vincenzo is travelling with Giuseppe's brother, ? Paolo Taormina, on line 19?

Hi Biff,

Sorry I didn't answer you for so long. My internet has been running amok.

I did not even see that. This could be very interesting. I just need to find the sister that married into Taormina. I am pretty sure he had a brother named Micheal, but have not found the sister link yet.

Thanks again for pointing that out. I am learning a little bit every day.
