MyHeritage user Marie Louise Gallay’s 20 years of genealogical research took a completely unexpected turn when she received a Smart Match™ from Argentina. Here is her story:It’s so touching to see a family photo with several generations all together in one place. You and your maternal ancestors may not have had the privilege of knowing each other in real life, but through photographs, you can reach back through the ages and connect with the women who made you who you are today.

My name is Marie Louise, age 59, and I live in Cluses, a commune in the Haute-Savoie department tucked into the Alps of southeastern France. I’ve been researching an Italian branch of my tree for years — the family of an Italian great-great-grandmother named Angelina Tornanelli. Angelina was born in 1832 in Piasco, a municipality in the Piedmont region of Italy. She married my great-great-grandfather Joseph Gallay, who lived in the village of Chevenoz in Haute-Savoie, and it was there that she died in 1889. Their descendants continued to live in Haute-Savoie, especially from La Forclaz, a tiny village with only 200 inhabitants.
