I have just begun in my search of family history and came across this website. My grandfather Emilio Susmel came from Gorizia died in the late 1920s or early 1930s. He was a successful businessman but lost everything in the Great Depression. My father recalls he owned a cinema in Trieste at one time.
Very little is known about him because apparantly he was married and my father was one of his mistress' children! He also died when my father was quite young.(of pneumonia).
If anyone can add this this info it would be greatly appreciated.
