Lena Nigrelli on 1920 Census?

Postby Romano1970 » 29 Dec 2008, 01:40

Hi, I have been trying to locate Carmela ( Lena ) Nigrelli on the 1920 Census. Passaic NJ.

Could anyone help locate her on it. She may still have been living with her brother Salvatore Nigrelli.

Thanks in advance.

There are a number of them all over the NE but if you give me her age as it would be today I can Zero in on her location. There is no Passaic, NJ for her only salvatore. =peter=

Hey Peter. She was born in 1893 , July 9th.
So if she was still alive today she would be 116 years of age.

Hi peter. Well I know when she came to America it was to passaic NJ and she is on the 1930 Census with my grandfather Lorenzo Romano at 295 oak street Passaic NJ.

If we cant find it it is ok. I just wanted to see where she might have been at the time. Dont kill yourself over it my friend.

Did you enjoy the warm spell today??
