Hello Everyone, I'm new here, just trying to find some information on my great-grandfather, Vittorio Borella and his family. I have his birth certificate which states he was born July 1, 1901 in Bore, Parma Italy, his parents were Gaetano and Giovanna (Felloni) Borella. I'm not sure when he came to America or through which port (Ellis Island or Boston). At some point he changed his name to Victor Borelli. I also have his "Certificate of Naturalization" issued in Boston on May 28,1945, issued to "Victor Borella", but on his picture someone changed the last name to "Borelli". He was in Bridgewater,Massachusetts for a time then moved to Woburn,Massachusetts were he lived until he died in 1984. If anyone has any information or can point me in the right direction, I would be very greatful. Thank you.

Thank you Michael31 for the information. I wish I had more information from my family, however, they don't have any more to go on than I do. I'm having a hard time just finding census records other than the 1940 one from Woburn Mass. I know they lived in the Bridgewater Mass area before 1940, but have hit a wall there. I guess I'll keep digging anyway! Thanks!

Hi, not sure if you had any more luck on your research. I am searching for similar info. We have a family member named Secondinha Borella. Her parents are listed as goetano Borella and Joanna Felloni (which I believe is the same as Giovanna). Please let me know if you have any further info along these lines. Thanks!
