All very interesting. Especially about your Dad's nose. On teacher Dazzo, it was not unattractive. Good looking man, but he was definitley Italian (at the least the way he was brought up, because the world seemed to center around all things Italian. And I am sure he was born here in the US). So perhaps it is a very distant relative.
Also, sorry, you know how New Yorkers think eveyone lives here. DIdn't think that perhaps you don't, ha. Anyway, nice chatting, if I ever hear about my Mr. Dazzo, I'll let you know.
