Dennis,

I think we are cousins! I sent a very long message earlier, but I think for some reason it didn't go thru. sigh.

It appears that your maternal grandmother (Anna Roberti Emiliani --> Gertrude Ann Emiliani Ross ---> You) was the older sister of MY maternal grandmother (Mary Roberti Lowe ---> Olivette Lowe Partridge ---> Olivia Lowe Partridge).

Your grandmother (aka: Countess Emiliani, aka: Mother Texas) was my favorite aunt! I was just an infant when she was re-patriated to the States after WWII (with the help of non-other than "Pacelli-the-Saint" as she was wont to call Pope Pius XII). I really didn't get to know her well until I was a young adult -- in 1967.

My understanding was that her husband Edgar, Sr. died before Annie was repatriated in 1947. My dates could be off by a year or two but I really don't think so.

I have a newspaper clipping from the Galveston press about Annie's citizenship in 1952. (Since she was caught in Europe during the war, she lost her previous naturalized citizenship because she was out of the US for longer than 7 years...as was the law of the time.) In any case, the law required 5 years to be re-naturalization. so that meant she returned in 1947 (which is what the family oral tradition states.)

In any event, let's share some family history, ok?

Your cousin,

Olivia
