  1. Buonasera, Maria Verger is my grand- grandmother and there is a mistake : her father was Oreste Verger , teacher of mathematic ,her mother Giuseppina Naselli , Napoleone Verger was her uncle , Amalia Brambilla was her grand mother . Thank you very much

  2. Buonasera, Maria verger era la mia bisnonna, figlia di Amalia e napoleone. Enrico, suo figlio, era mio nonno. Non capisco l' errore!! Enrica Barsi
