I am a Langiano as well and my parents, brother and sister were all born and raised in Cassino, Italy. Just to let you know...there was fire in Cassino that wiped out allot of the records but I'm vague on the details. Chances are that if we are both Langiano and from Cassino then we may be related (in some distant way).
When I was 14 years old I bought a Milei bicycle. I remember that my father told me that the person who invented Miele Bicycles was from Cassino, Italy and he knew him.
Would this be the same Miele that your great aunt Yvonne Married?
I would really like to compare notes and stories with you. It's not too often that I meet a Langiano, especially from Cassino. There are so few of us.
