Hi Sherri,
On my grandfather's (Salvatore Palazzolo) Petition for Naturalization Frank Orlando was one of his witness' (the other witness was Paul Navarra). Do you know if your grandfather was a barber and lived at 1391 E Larned St in Detroit in 1919?

Hi Sherri,
After I got my grandfather's naturalization papers, I started to look for info on Frank Orlando and Paul Navarra to see if I could find info on them, too. Unfortantely, I couldn't find your grandfather in the Detroit City Directories I looked at. But in the 1929-1930 directory Paul Navarra is married to a Grace. They lived on 8848 Neal. My grandfather was married to Maria, but they divorced in 1921.

I did get your PM, I'll email you too. :D

Ann
