I have come across your messages and thought it might by a good idea to add mine. I was born in Venice, Italy in 1959 and was adopted by an American family. Like you, I am also trying to find my story. I don't know where to begin. I have just recently really delved into my papers that I have had for many years. The surname given to me by someone witnessing my birth is Girole. This name was changed when I was adopted. Any suggestions or help would be appreciated.
