  1. Janice DeBiasio :

    My condolences to read about your loss of Chiara. I am the granddaughter of Emma and Gerome DeBiasio from Trail. My grandparents spoke of Chiara often. My grandparents have passed away leaving me without an avenue to learn about my extended family. I am trying to learn where in Italy my family originated. Chiara’s father was brother to my grandmother Emma. If you are able to provide me with any information I would be eternally grateful. As well I would be so thankful to learn about my living extended family.
    Thank you.
    Janice DeBiasio
