Hello. My Great, Great Grandparents were Giovani Bottamedi, and Ghezzi Castellan Bottamedi. My Great grandmother (Tillie Bottamedi) from Northern Italy (formerly) Austria, was married to my great grandfater Giovani (John) Ropele. They immigrated to US in the late 1800s and settled in SW Pennsylvania. They had 11 children. One who is still living my great aunt Elisabeth.
