now that i have more time i'll try to make sense. My name is carl , my father was louis gazzola he was born in ny 1912. he was from piacenza. his fathers name was i think luigi. his mother was maria batini or battini. both of his parents died when he was very young. i have cousins still alive in italy and will have to ask my mother for their names. i was born in the bronx and lived on hoffman st and 187th. i would like to contact other gazzolas and see if i have any long lost cousins. hope to hear from someone soon . e mail address ?
