Looking for my Father - Tony Ranieri

Postby AquilaStanley » 07 May 2015, 00:47

My mother, Constance Connolly, told me my real father's name, Tony Ranieri, and that he was born around 1911. They knew one another in Port Chester, NY - in Westchester County - around 1954 - and I was born in 1955, in Santa Monica CA. They were not married, and due to the fact that I had only first heard of him in 1973 prior to boarding a flight to college on the west coast, I was never given an opportunity to hear more about him or details of my family history, as my mother passed away the very next year before I returned from college. I have done a bit of researching, but most "leads" end up going nowhere. If anyone has any information on a Ranieri family in the New York area during the mid-1950's, I would really appreciate hearing any info or details.

These are the only families I could find in 1940 census with an Anthony Ranieri of about that age. They are both from NY area.
