Thank you so much for that information. We have looked for so many years and have come up empty handed. You have no idea how much we appreciate this.

How would we go about finding Lena's death certificate or marriage license?

I'm afraid you'll need to write away for Lena's records.
New Jersey really doesn't have much online.

my name is Nicole Pizzarelli. my father is Steve Pizzarelli and his mother was Carmela (Mattone) Pizzarelli and his father is Rocco Pizzarelli. Since Pizzarelli is not a commom last name i am guessing that I am related to whom you are asking about. I am trying to find some information on my family. Maybe we could help out eachother.

My great-grandmother's madian name was Pizzarelli and I know when they came from Italy they changed their first names to be more American. There was a
4/22/1910 SS Europa, Napoli to NY
Rosalia Tripodina - 49 widow
Joining son Pasquale - born in Palmi (Reggio Calabria, Calabria)
Bernardo Pizzarelli - 22 (abt 1887-8)
Lettera Pizzarelli - 14
Concetta Pizzarelli - 10
Domenica Pizzarelli - 7
Gerardo Pizzarelli - 4
This is all I have and would love to know more. I hope some of this will help.
