I am currently putting together a family tree and doing research on the history of both sides of my family. My maiden name is Karle. My mom's maiden name is Barsotti. Other surnames I am trying to find out about include: Viani, Cabona, Gobel (not sure of spelling). My mom's family was Italian. My dad's family was German from Russia.
I know my maternal grandmother, Stella Viani, was born in Truckee, California in 1901. My maternal grandfather, Adolfo Barsotti, was born in Lucca, Italy in 1897.
My paternal grandfather, Michael Karle, immigrated to Sanger, California from Russia around 1920. My maternal grandmother, Anne Gobel followed my grandfather. I am not sure of the exact dates they came to America or the year of their births.
My mother's name is Elaine Barsotti. She was born in 1923 and is still alive. She married my father William Karle in 1949. My father passed away in 1997.
I have one brother, David Karle.
