  1. Albino and Vittoria are my great-great grandparents as well. One of their sons moved to the Netherlands in the 1930’s to set up a terrazzo business.

    I am currently the last branch of the Mion family in the Netherlands, though I do not hope the name will end with me here.

    My father has pictures of the tombstones as well. He also has an ancient family portrait with both Albino and Vittoria, as well as one (or two, not sure) of their kids. Let me know if you are interested in a scan of the picture!

    Kind regards,

    Lars Mion

    1. This is so great! Thank you for getting in touch. We would *love* a scan of the picture, Lars. I’ll have Michael (he’s the Mion relative in our family) get in touch with you directly. Thanks again!

  2. Amazing! Albino and Vittoria were my great great grandparents as well. One of their daughters, Onerina, ended up in Michigan USA. My parents even have a picture of each of them hanging in their home now. In the picture of the three people together above, I think two of them are my Aunt Tony and Uncle Albert. It has been almost a decade since I have seen them in the USA, but it looks like them. They are wonderful people. I hope you enjoyed your visit. My wife and I are propbably going over in the Spring of 2013, and hope to see them if we can. Please let me know if this is Albert and Tony. If you are interested, I will send you images of the pictures of Albino and Vittoria that my mother has. You can email me at btj12041973@yahoo.com, or call 419.297.2304. My name is Beau. I hope to hear from you soon.

    1. Hi Beau! Yes, that’s Albert and Toni! The third person sitting with them is my husband Michael, who is also related to you (his father, Robert, is Nora Snyder’s brother). Would love to see more pictures of Albino and Vittoria. My email address is on my About page. Thanks so much for writing!

    2. Onorina married Romano Maddalena in Jackson Michigan. They had 4 kids:
      Olga, Nucci, Nora & Roberto.

      My Great Grandfather Luigi worked at Maddalena brothers after leaving Italy and settling in Jackson. Luigi’s brother Vittorio Mion started Central Tile and Terrazzo in Kalamazoo, Michigan with his cousins Guiseppe and Carlo Mion and my Grandfather Remo Mion who started working there when he turned 18. Remo moved with my great grandmother Giovanna (Luston) Mion and uncle Osvaldo Mion to the United States in 1934 to be with Luigi.

      I have a lot of cousin’s in the West Michigan area from Fanna. The Reggio’s, Maddelena’s, Amat’s, Toffolo’s, Giroloami’s and Mion’s all live in the area. There are also some in-laws from a town near Fanna called Porpetto that settled in the area, their surnames are Filiputti and Braganini

  3. Wow, I really feel bad. It took me eight months to find your response. My apologies. But, I am thrilled to hear from you. The next time I am at my mother’s house I will take pictures and send them to you.
    How are Uncle Bob and Aunt Jo? It has been a few years since I have seen them. I hope they are well.
    It will not take me eight more months to get the pictures to you. I promise!!!
    All the best,

  4. Beste Mion. Mijn opa heette Mian maar op het pasport van zijn vader stond Mion. Hij kwam uit Fanna en is naar Rotterdam gekomen. Ik ben benieuwd of we familie zijn vr gr Connie

  5. My inlaws were from Fana. I wonder if you are related to them. Romano Mion and Marina Roman. Robert Mion is who I married.
