Strazza and Pennella families

Postby joillyj@comcast.net » 27 Jul 2015, 05:12

I'm trying to find information on my Grandfather and Grandmother's family.

Unfortunately, this is what I know.

My Grandfather was Gaetano Thomas Strazza born on January 1, 1889. He died on December 27, 1973. My Grandmother was Incoronata Gertrude Pennella born on April 16, 1896. She died on September 25, 1983. Both grandparents came to united starts around 1906 - 1921 time period.

My Grandfather's parents were Guisepantonio Strazza and Carmina Pennella.
My Grandmother's parents were Filomenia Salzarulo and Raffaele Pennella. I believe my grandfather was from Morra De Sanctis. They attended St. Rocco's Church.


Thank you Joanne Jackson.
