Based on your location in Visalia, this is a possible 1930 Census Record
from California, Tulare County, Visalia Township.

Tony Cassella, head, age 28, fruit farmer, year of immigration 1904
Angelina, wife, age 29, year of immigration 1917
John, son, age 3
Florence, age 1

Following household on census

John Casella, head, age 25, fruit farmer, born California
Pasquale DeLuca, lodger, age 56, year of immigration 1910
Amelia, sister, age 22
Annie Mazzie ?, sister, age 16
Josephine Mazzie, sister, age 14
Philomena Mazzie, mother, age 45, widowed, year of immigration 1905

A side note: Don't take the stated immigration years as gospel.

Did your family emigrate to California directly and if so where, and did they live anyplace else prior to 1930?

Possible 1920 Census for same state, county, township

Filomena Mazza, age 40, head, widowed
Tony Mazza, son, age 18
John Cassella, son, age 14
Amelia Cassella, daughter, age 12
Philimene Casella, daughter, age 9
Annie Mazza, daughter, age 6
Josephine Mazza, daughter, age 4

Can you verify the above?

Thanks all for the information, I believe it all belongs to my family.

I believe my family emigrated straigt to Visalia, I believe that they came part of the way by train and they did stop in Corcoran, CA on the way to Visalia.
