My name is Judi Mattorano. I am married now with my last name as Alexander. I am trying to find out information about our family history. Here is as much as I know for now.
My father is Vincent Charles Mattorano Sr.
My grandfather is James Mattorano (real name Vincenzo Mattorano)
My grandfather's brother Dominic Mattorano changed the spelling of his name to Martorano (i think)
My grandfather's brother was Angelo Mattorano(sounds like your great grandfather) married to Aunt Ellen
Aunt Ellen and my grandmother (Big Jim's wife) were sisters- So sisters married brothers. I believe their last name was Paradiso
My grandfather's father was Vincenzo Mattorano married to Theresa
My father's siblings are Alfonso, Rose,Emilio, Anthony (Tony), Vincent, Theresa, Peggy, and Loretta (passed about 10 years ago).
I remember meeting Aunt Pauline when I was really young. I am 43 years old and one of Vincent's children. I have a sister by the name of Johnna Mattorano and a brother by the name of Vincent Mattorano Jr.
My father goes by Chuck or Charles lives in Denver and is 71 years old.
I am taking my father to Italy in the next year and would love to have any information.
Thanks so much
Judi Mattorano Alexander
