Rizzi family

Postby PamellaRitz » 30 Aug 2005, 19:43

I am searching for information on Giovanni Rizzi, born 1889. Ellis Island records say that he was from Castellana. He changed his name to Sam Ritz. His sister Cecilia Rizzi came to the U.S. in 1920 from Casamassima. He also had a brother Joseph Rizzi that came to the U.S. Any information on this family would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Pamella

Please be more specific in your request for info, this way, we avoid duplicating research you have already done.

The only other info I have on Giovanni is that he came to the U.S. in 1904 at the age of 15. His father's name may have been Samuel & his mother Mattie Lea. I would like to know who his parents were & any sibblings that stayed in Italy. I do not know the Italian language, and am not sure where or how to search for information.

Thanks for you replies,
Pamella

Here is a form letter for request of birth, marriage, and death acts.

If you would like census info which may provide the year of naturalization, and additional infos on the family, we need the state in which they lived, name of spouse and children.

Pamella, not sure if this will help but I have some Rizzi's in my family tree. May be ancestors to yours, maybe not.

IDA RIZZI was born December 09, 1853 in Teggiano, Salerno, Italy, and died December 28, 1918 in McGregor, Aitkin, Minnesota. She married VITO GIORDANO in Teggiano, Salerno, Italy. He was born August 15, 1845 in Teggiano, Salerno, Italy, and died June 06, 1929 in McGregor, Aitkin, Minnesota.

Children of IDA RIZZI and VITO GIORDANO are:

BARBARA (GIORDANO)3 JORDAN, b. June 26, 1876, Teggiano, Salerno, Italy; d. November 03, 1925, Duluth, St. Louis, Minnesota.

MARY MICHELA GIORDANO, b. February 11, 1874, Teggiano, Salerno, Italy; d. June 23, 1930, Duluth, St. Louis, Minnesota.

FILOMENA (PHILOMENA) GIORDANO, b. June 04, 1879, New York, New York; d. January 14, 1966, Duluth,
St. Louis, Minnesota.

Not sure if this will help.
