Hi, Carole.

What years would we be talking about?

Did Joseph and/or Christina emigrate from Italy?

Ah, I see - Joe/Giuseppe immigrated from Italy in 1905 and Cristina from Czechoslovakia in 1913:

Possibly Joseph Jr?

Schererville is a few miles outside Gary. May give some clues as to searching out still-living relatives.

Sure, maybe it is a long shot, but would it hurt to ask?

Thank you so much, for the replies. Searching yesterday, I did find the 1920 and 1930 census pages.
With that information, I did not know how to go about looking for living relatives though. The only, brief, contact I had with the family was the late 1950's to the late 1960's. I know there is a daughter, Ann Marie/Anna Marie?, who does not appear on the 1930 census. In the 60's she had 5 children (all cousins of mine).
I know the families resided in Gary, Indiana at that time.

While searching, I stumbled upon this forum and thought perhaps I might find something here.

I've tried looking at Facebook, but there are a lot of Valenti 's.

Thanks again, I sincerely appreciate the help.

If the Joseph Valenti death notice I posted above is indeed Joseph Jr (birth year looks good as does location), then the Lisa Valenti realtor I linked to (same town, outside Gary) may be related to him.

Give her a call or send an email.
