This site attempts to traces several threads of my family history. If you’re related or know the family, and have any lore or stories to share, feel free to comment!

Immigrants From Vesignano, Italy
Our branch of the Cavalletto family immigrated to America a century ago from Vesignano, Italy.
Traces of this immigration are visible in the Ellis Island records for Cavalletto, Cavaletto, and Cavallette.
The extended Cavalletto family in the Santa Barabara area has gathered and shared information about the history of the family. One version of this story was posted as How the Cavallettos settled in Santa Barbara, with a family tree since 1600, and an accompanying letter from George Sr.
