1930 Census - Brooklyn, NY

Ralph Rinella 42 immigrated 1891
Rose Rinella 39 immigrated 1891
(married 23-24 years, approx 1906-1907)
(All children born in NY)
Rosaline Rinella 20
James Rinella 18
Mary Rinella 16
Madeline Rinella 13
Margaret Rinella 8
Jenny Rinella 10
Michael Rinella 7
Yolanda Rinella 5
Ralph Rinella 4

1920 Census - Brooklyn NY

Ralph Renclio 32 immigrated 1900 Naturalized 191?
Rose Renclio 28 immigrated 1895 Naturalized 191?
Rose Renclio 9
Vince Renclio 7
Mary Renclio 5
Madeline Renclio 3 6/12
Jennie Renclio 7/12
(Renclio looks like Rinella though, just transcribed incorrectly)

Some conflicting information between the two census' when it comes to immigration year, I would put more faith in the 1920 info...

WWII Draft Registration:
Ralph Rinello - 27 Mar 1888 - Paula, Italy - Brooklyn, New York White

WWI Draft Registration:
Ralph Rinello - 17 May 1886 - White Brooklyn, Kings, NY

(again some more inconsistancy, I would lean toward the 1888 date since it seems to jive with the census data)

Best of luck,

Mike

Remmy, Madeline was wife of Antonio Rinella therefore Madeline should have her own surname... Smile...

No, I don't see marriage record (they are usually found at a county level of government).... Madeline's maiden name seems to have been Mathias..

California Birth Index, 1905-1995
Name: Leonard Rinella
Birth Date: 16 May 1946
Gender: Male
Mother's Maiden Name: Mathias
Birth County: Santa Clara

Name: Wesley Michael Rinella
Birth Date: 16 Jan 1949
Gender: Male
Mother's Maiden Name: Mathias
Birth County: Santa Clara

Cynthia Rinella
Birth Date: 10 Nov 1950
Gender: Female
Mother's Maiden Name: Mathias
Birth County: Santa Clara

California Voter Registration
Madeline Mathias - Santa Clara County 1940

(We can assume Madeline and Antonio married between 1940-1946)
check with Santa Clara County Recorder to ask about birth and marriage index:

East Wing, First floor
70 West Hedding Street
San Jose, CA 95112
(408) 299-2481


Some other stuff:

California Marriage Index
Leonard Rinella born abt 1946
Shirley A Ridgway born abt 1947
Marriage Date: 30 Dec 1965 Santa Clara

California Divorce Index
Leonard N Rinella
Shirley A Ridgway
Santa Clara Sep 1975

Best of luck,

Mike,

Ok, what about Madeline Mathias's husband Antonio Rinella? I am sure his ancestors are from Italy, maybe Sicily...

I know this discussion is 2 years old but:

There were 2 men named Ralph Rinello in the 1920 Census AND they lived on the same street.

#1 Ralph Rinello, 33 Spencer St, Brooklyn DOB 17 May 1886 (ED245)
#2 Ralph Rinello, 38 Spencer S, Brooklyn, DOB 27 Mar 1888 (ED244)

I am sure they were related but the one on my family tree is #1
