I am your cousin. My name is Randolph Martin Fiery.
My mother Geneva Zando Fiery was born in 1921. Her father Robert Zando was a stone mason and builder in Falcade. My grandmother Catherine Zando, her maiden name was also Zando, was your mother's sister. My mother told me about her aunt in Detroit and also about the family in Burbank. She told me that Johnny Carson always ate at your family's restaurant. This is the same family isn't it?
My mother is 88 and has dementia. Yet she can sometimes still remember great stories from the past. In addition, I can connect you to several of your cousins, the Vecillio’s, that know much more about the family history. Your cousin Connie and my brother Michael have visited the Treviso/Falcade area several times to visit one of your uncles, Ottorino Zando.His father was Augusto Zando.
I also knew the story that we were related to John Paul the first and that he was the pope for a very short period of time.
I live in Chesapeake, Virginia. Please e-mail me or response and we can also talk by phone.
