I am just starting my search and came across your posting. My name is Frank Azarelo. Somewhere down the road my grandfather changed it to 1 Z and 1 L. He was from Brooklyn NY. He was known as James Azarelo but was born Vincenzo Azzarello. He was married to Antionetta Conti also of Brooklyn, NY. He had 2 brothers, Carmine also known as "Buckeye" and Joseph. Their father was Francesco Azzarello an came to this country in late 1899 or early 1900. Does any of this strike a chord with you? Let me know.
