I hope you are doing well today. I am scrambling to write this before I forget especially I need to leave for work in the next half an hour. But I really wanted to write this post because I have an update on the May line. Well actually, I do but this one is about the Trizzino line for a change as I just had a major breakthrough and believe that I have confirmed one of Vincenzo's cousins.
The evidence is all to do with Vincenzo's World War I draft card and a deed that I found in my old documents for Giuseppe Trizzino. I was downloading the GRO birth and death records for the May line for my post today when I noticed that I had a 1916 deed for Giuseppe and Carmella Trizzino in Cleveland. My excitement came as I thought that Giuseppe was the father of Vincent who I thought I finally found in Cleveland, Ohio before I foolishly realized my mistake that his father is actually Alfonso not Giuseppe/Joseph. However, before I realized this, I looked up Giuseppe Trizzino in Cleveland on Family Search and came up with nothing. But I also know that Joseph is the English variation and came across the infamous Joseph and Onofrio, the Trizzino brothers who were murdered by Carmella's brother in 1939. The address for them in 1920 marks them as living at 12313 Fairview Ct: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:33SQ-GRXT-2X8?i=49&cc=1488411
Vincenzo's Word War I Draft registration lists him at 12313 Fairview Ct on June 5, 1917: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:33S7-81D4-9HMF?i=452&cc=1968530
Now the kicker is that Giuseppe and Carmella bought the land from Michael and Rosa Valentine who were living at the same address in the 1910 US Census: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:33S7-9RKW-7GK?i=10&cc=1727033
I am well aware that just because they have the same last name and lived together does not make them cousins on their own but I do know that Joseph and Onofrio's father is Paolo Trizzino who is born in Bivona, Agrigento, Sicilia, Italia. It just so happens that Vincenzo has an uncle who was born in Bivona, Agrigento, Sicilia, Italia on December 31, 1850 should the following record be viable: https://www.familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/XVTV-KJZ
While I am more confident than ever do you all think that the evidence is concrete enough to begin to make the connection on this site official? If not, what should my next steps be?
