Italian Americans in Connecticut, 1942

Postby DeborahLar » 26 Oct 2007, 12:26

I have come across a 1942 publication entitled "Who's Who of Italian American Descent in Connecticut" on worldvitalrecords.com. If you have relatives from Connecticut and you do not have access to www.worldvitalrecords.com (subscripton required) I would be happy to look up your Italian surname for you.

How about Tinto or Colombo? I know the Tinto's lived in the New Haven area but I don't think it was as early as 1942.

Hello Deborah,

I have a real challenge for you! I am looking for a woman named Samantha and her last name could almost be SAVAGE. She disliked her last name and liked to be called by the name Savage. She was from Hartford, CT and would be about 40. She went to Northeasten University in the late 80's. She also had a younger sister perhaps ten years her junior. I was thinking something like Slavaggio? Have searched far and wide for her. Was told a few years back that she had committed suicide and I would like to make my peace.

Any help would be greatly appriciated!

Regards,

Mark
