Lost relative

Postby 02Nomad » 03 Jun 2012, 03:18

I'm looking for information on Dominick Rizzo. He was born in Old Forge, PA and moved to Kearney, NJ in the 1940's' I believe. His wife's name was Filomena and they had a daughter named Irene.

I can't thank you enough! I've been searching for information on my grandparent's mother & father for some time now. I didn't know my great grandmother's maiden name until your reply. I'm going to Felitto in October and this information will be an enormous help in my researching my "roots". I Googled Felitto and found a site with phone listings so I entered my last name and got 10 listings for individuals in a town of 1390 people! I wrote identical letters to all of them and after about 2 weeks got an email from the only English-speaker. We've been emailing back and forth and she has offered to make herself available to help with the language. I'm taking a beggining Italian course, but I won't be able to do it on my own. Again, thank you, you've given me some valuable information!
