My name was changed from Giarratana. I was born in 1934 to Jean and Joseph Giarratana. Joseph was the oldest of 3 brothers, Thomas, Tony, Samuel and 1 younger sister Kate. All brothers lived in New Jersey. Kate (unknown married name - somewhere near Connecticut). I grew up in West Orange - Thomas also lived there at one time. Joseph was a barber and an officer in the Union. Tony worked for a brewery, and Sam was a delivery driver. Don't know what Thomas did-I remember he had a mustache and was very personable - There's a strong possibility that distant relative are involved here.
