|Carole, one more favor...God I feel so stupid. Would translate Roberto's words?|
Isn't it great Joe? And two still living in the same area...
But if you hear any yelling from me over here, it won't be to say "Oh no!", but
|No Porta is their surname...|
It is possible that a De Maso daughter married a man named Porta and Porta Maria was one of the children of that marriage and Porta Francesco may be the son of the same marriage.
Don't forget the female offspring carry the paternal surname forward - NOT the maternal one. So the mother of these two could be the direct De Maso line...
Here are their phone listings:
>Porta Family Pieve di Cadore>
Wan't me to give it a go?
If you do - send me a PM about what you want to ask - or get yourself onto Skype and YOU can call and I'll interpret for you on a three way call!
Nuccia and I do three and four way calls all the time and it would answer some of your questions straight away!
|Oh I love Skype. That's how Simy and I first started talking..and Riccardo too with Carole at one point to interpret for me and Simy.|
And then with Jim, and Cathy. I even call my relatives in Italy on their house phone and talk for 10 minutes and only pay about 50 cents! You must try it..and we speak English so you wouldn't need an interpreter with us!
Walgreens has cheap headsets for $9.99 but those never last. But Best Buy has wonderful Microsoft Chat Headset for $29. Those are better and block a lot of external noise out. I use them to listen to mp3's on my laptop too.
