A Place To Find Your Family History

John Sasso's Notes



This is a photo of my great grandmother, Valeria Sasso (Meola) she was married to Giovanbattista Sasso. She came to the Bronx NY to raise her three grandchildren with her son (my grandfather, Giovani Sasso).  My grandmother Carmela Sasso (Boxcia) died in 1918 at the age of 37.



I believe the couple on the right are my grandparents because the two children look like my father and his sister Josephina.  The young girl behind them was a cousin who we called Aunt Jenny Garzillio.  I do not know who the others are in the picture.   Maybe someone will recognize them and let us all know who they are.  My Uncle Matteo Sasso lived in lower Manhattan so he may be one of the other men in this picture.
