You said:I believe they also traveled to America with The Zando Family who migrated to West Virginia..

I am part of the West Virginia-Zando connection. My mother is Geneva Zando Fiery. Her father was Robert Zando, a stone mason in Falcade. His wife was Catherine Zando, there were several Catherine's in this family, and her maiden name was Zando also.

My grandfather and his two brothers, Joe and Pete all migrated to West Virginia.

my mother kept in touch with the Detroit part of the family. She frequently told me about your family in Burbank. She always said that Johnny Carson loved your family's restaurant in Burbank.

My mom is 88 and has dementia. Yet she sometimes remembers the old stories. In addition, you have several cousins that know much more than I do about the history of our family.

My mother kept in touch with Ottorino Zando who lives in the Treviso/Falcade region.His father was named Augusto. Anyway you have a number of Zando cousins spread out through West Virginia,South Carolina Virginia, Tacoma Park Maryland and Mobile Alabama.

I hope you get this e-mail. My mom's health is slipping, but she will love to know that I have heard from one of the family. By the way you might want to do a Google search on the Coal building/chamber of commerce building in Williamson, West Virginia. It was built by my grandfather in the 1920s and it is made of coal.

My e-mail is I hope to hear from you.
