I am in search of my great grandmother, Lola Matelli Evans. She married my great grand father, Otis Evans in 1942, in chicago, il.

The only thing is too is that I have otis's death certicate, and she is the spouse, and they spell her name as Lola Matelli, and they also spell it that way on the marriage license......

Great find Laura!!
DJ alot of times on records the names and dates get copied wrong along the way. Why HUMAN ERROR especaily foriegn names my original surname is Adelfio over 150 years now it is Adelphia it went from Adelfio to Adelphio to Adelphia all because of the PEN. I think the same thing happen to Lola Matullo/Matelli/Matteelli it just amazing isnt it............................
I will check on Otis's records I posted your great great grandfather's and 2x grandmothers ships manifest and a couple of the real good researchers said he and his wife came and was born in
Pescia - Pistoia province - Tuscany region here is there post click on it

Now if you want to continue Matteelli/Matullo side you can get records from Italy
