About Our Family Research
I am just beginning to research our family tree. I know that my great grandfather came over from Italy and had a different spelling of DiPaola that was changed in the early 1900's. They did not travel through Ellis Island, like most immigrants at that time, but rather passed through New Orleans, LA and settled in Patterson, LA. Thirty years later, they moved to Hammond, LA.
