I'm just starting my famliy tree and I am looking for a lot of information. To start there is Enrico (Rico) Sardino who imigrated from Italy with his wife Nicoletta Sardino (Marvlli). They came from San Valentino, Italy. My grandfather was born there in 1915 or 1916. I'm not sure when they came to the U.S., but they did settle in the Detroit, Michigan area. They had three children Mario, Virgina, and Adeena. At this point I'm not sure who was born where. Once the family settled the last name changed to Sordino. I am looking for any informtion on the family before they came to the U.S.. Also Nicoletta's father was Giacomo Marvlli. But I am not sure if he was from the San Valentino area also.
Next I'm looking information on a Lydia Brown born on Aug 6, 1866. She had a twin sister named Louise or Louisa Brown. I don't know if they were identical twins. Lydia lived in Unicoi County Tennessee. But she was not born there, she told famliy that she came across the mountains in a covered wagon. I belive that Louise (Louisa) came with her. Lydia married Andrew Cooper of Unicoi county Tennessee. They had three children Neta, Laura, and Hobert. If any one knows what happened to Louise (louisa) Brown or where they or Andrew came from it would be helpful.

Next is George Rachow. I know that he was german and had a wife named Elise. They had Five childern Jhon, Edna, Viola, Elmer, and Byron. Still looking for information on George Rachow, lots updated on Elise.

Last is Erenst Meinke Sr. and his wife Pauline. They had nine Children Lyle, Robert, Russell, Caroline, Edward, Willbert, Virgina, Ernest,and Geraldine. Virgina and Geraldine I'm ok with. After that I've gotten lost again. I do know that child services broke up the family and split up the childeren.


If I can help anyone out, I'd be glad to help with your family trees. Good luck and thank you
