Any info much appreciated! I have only just started trying to construct my family tree! I am the daughter of "Rudolph" and niece of "Samuel", who were both born in the Newark/East Orange area of NJ in the 1940's. My Grandfather's name was "Charles" (1914-1995); my paternal grandmother was "Anna Picardi", nee "Spadone" (dec'd 1966, NJ)). My Grandfather was one of eight brothers and sisters born in the Boston, Massachussetts area (Guy, Philip, Theresa Borelli (nee Picardi), Mary, Margaret, Josephine, Julia). Their mother died approx. 1920.
I suspect our line may be related to the huge "Picardi" contingent in Boston; my theory is that my great-grandfather emigrated to this area along with his parents and siblings, but at present, I cannot prove whether he was a child or adult when he came to America.
Possible names of great-grandparents, "Rudolph" and "Amelia"; but I am awaiting confirmation on this.
Please contact me by email in the first instance (I live in London) if you think you can help. Even the smallest info I will be grateful for!! Thank you!
