Giuseppe (Joseph) Guzzo about 1950 maybe

This is the Grandpa I knew. If anyone has any photos that you would like posted here, send them to me via email and I will post them. I would also love to have them to include in the Guzzo Family Tree book.

Guzzo Guzzi Guzzie

I'm creating this blog for everyone in the family so please try to contribute, ask questions, tell stories;whatever you care to share with the rest of us. It's your blog, too.

I've named the blog this way in case there's anyone out there looking for their Guzzo ancestors. I have found it spelled all three ways.

I am in an Italian Genealogy forum and will pass along anything I find out from being a part of that. Here' IS a Youtube about the Arbereshe people. They are the Albanians living in southern Italy. I was told Grandpa, Joseph Guzzo, was Albanian. If he was, it was maybe his father or grandfather that was driven away from Albania. Many landed in Caraffa, and/or southern Italy. Arbereshe video. From there, you'll see other videos about the Arbereshe people.

This one is really cool........Carafa A celebration for Santa Domenica My Country There's others there you may be interested in viewing. I love this ONE
You'll find Caraffa right in the middle of the map.

Caraffa is in the middle of the skinny part of the foot.
