LLantz294 has been a Family Tree Circles member since Sep 2007. is researching the following names: CRITELLI, RIZZETTA, DIODATO and 1 other(s).


My grandmother was born July 11, 1876 in Pentone. Her parents were Francesco Calabrese and Rosa Critelli. She had a sister named Concetta, Concetta married Nicolo ? who owned a boarding house in Peekskill, NY. That is where my grandmother met my grandfather.

My grandfather was born in March 1870 to Francesco Rizzetta and Filomena (Esposito). I know he had a cousin named Salvatore Borselli. Grandpa was in construction and owned his own company in Yonkers, New York. Prior to that he lived in PA and was married to a Catrina Mazza, they had one son, Carmine or Carl who eventually changed his name to Frank Matz!!! While in PA grandpa worked for the railroad, however the name Diodato keeps coming up, I have no idea who that is although he is listed as my grandpa's fatherinlaw, maybe grandpa was married a few times before he finally tied the know with grandma. He was a bit of a "rascal"

If any of this sounds a bit familiar please Email me.
