Finding Paula's Parents

Postby bob2682 » 24 Mar 2008, 01:39

Hi,

I just found the names of my great-great grandparents in my great-grandmother's bible, but I'm not having any luck with any other details (where they are from, etc). Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

-My great-grandmother is Paula DiGregorio, born Paola Rizzo.
-Her parents are listed as Michael Rizzo and Pasqusa Perrone.
-Paola was born in 1899, social security #095-18-2617.
-Paola immigrated from Italy in 1920, but I don't know if her parents immigrated also.
-When Paola moved to the U.S., she lived in Brooklyn and eventually moved to Florida.
-If Michael and Pasqusa immigrated, I believe they would have lived in Brooklyn. If they didn't, I believe that they would have lived in Sicily, possibly near Castellammare del Golfo and/or Palermo.

Thanks!

Bob

You're right - that's Paula and her husband Leonardo.

Looks like there isn't any information about her parents though.
