A lovely video was posted recently on a Facebook group that I follow called “Chei da Chastelfon”. Created by Maurizio Mau Ruatti, it captures many of the beautiful memories shared by members of this group over the past year, most of whom are from Castelfondo or have roots in the village. Some of our Italian Genetti and Marchetti cousins have also posted photos and documents on this page – and a few of their faces show up in this little video clip.
I have found this group to be a genealogy treasure of images and information – and such an amazing way to keep in touch with our family in Trentino. Although our cousin connection may be distant, their photographs peel away years and generations, touching our hearts with Tyrolean heritage.
Mille grazie Maurizo Mau Ruatti! Your American cousins appreciate “Chei da Chastelfon, in video” and send our warm regards during this holiday season. My special thanks also to Giovanni Marchetti who leads this group. Giovanni has helped me with translating, identifying photos and has been very helpful with communications. Buon Natale a tutti!
