I am looking for the family of two brothers who went from Como in Italy to Denmark. Donatus Borella born appr. 1785 and Joseph Borella born appr. 1789. They were both merchants and applied for citizenship in Sakskoebing, Lolland in the south of Denmark. Donatus arrives first and applies for citizenship in 1807. Joesph applies in 1821 and states, that he has been living with his brother for 6 years at that moment, so he arrives in Denmark in 1815.
In the church record for the death of Joseph it states that he was born in Como.
A third Borella - Sebastian - was born appr. 1805 in Como. He settles in the same town but I haven't found out how they are related. They have contact.
Does anyone have some ideas as to how I find out more about these two brothers' ancestors? Or know anything about the family? I don't read/write Italian.
