Joseph R. Tanzillo, NY. Help. please?

Postby Rosana » 31 Aug 2011, 14:03

Hello,

I am searching for Joseph R. Tanzillo, from NY. I am trying to help my cousin from Germany, André Schaller and he is Mr. Tanzillo's grandson.
Joseph R. Tanzillo served in Germany during WW2, he was born 27/28 of January 1923/1924 .... sorry but his German grandmother could not remember exactly all the dates. They met in Germany while she was living in Frankfurt from 1945 to 1946.
Mr. Tanzillo would be 86 or 87 years old.

His address at that time was:

443 Benedict Ave.
Glenville. Tarrytown
New York

I am also in the process of getting a picture from those times. Hopefully I will be able to post it here too.
My cousin would love to meet his grandfather and family. Any help regarding this search would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,


Rosana.

Some of the people listed here http://www.whitepages.com/dir/tarrytown-ny/tanzillo might easily be relatives of the late Joseph Tanzillo.

Sleepy Hollow is just minutes from Tarrytown; Hawthorne only a few minutes more.

Many thanks to all the people that are helping me here. I just got a picture of Mr. Tanzillo while he was serving here in Germany.
This might help, if anyone can recognize him in this picture.
