Trips to Italy:
Our guest speaker at the 2003 reunion made a trip to the Piedmont valleys
shortly after the reunion. Below is some contact information he sent to
August 26, 2003
Mr. Larry C. Porter
2065 Lakeview Drive
Provo, UT 84604
Thank you for your letter dated August 21, 2003. I enjoyed meeting with
my Cardon cousins and I appreciate your good wishes.
Within a week of my presentation in Logan, I traveled to the Valleys with my
daughters. I spoke with Flora Ferrero about her availability to
accompany Cardon family members to the Cardon home and other locations in the
Valleys. Flora has a Masters Degree in History from the University of
Torino. She wrote her thesis on the conversion and immigration of
Waldensians to Utah. She will be pleased to perform this work and gave
me permission to publish her e-mail address for distribution to other members
of the Cardon family. Flora charges the very nominal price of $100.00
per day which I can attest is very well worth the price. Her e-mail
address is email@example.com.
Since she works, I would suggest that family members who intend to visit the
Valleys contact her two-to-three weeks prior to their planned visit so that
she can arrange her schedule. I understand that your daughter is one of
those who plans to visit the Valleys and I would likewise encourage her to
contact Flora as soon as she knows precisely when she will be in Italy.
I would appreciate it if you would disseminate this information to the Cardon
family. Several members asked me about making arrangements for touring
I look forward to seeing you again in the near future.
Very truly yours,
Michael W. Homer
