Month: September 2010

Joe and Mary Rigali

These two children are Joseph Patrick (1898-1973) and Maria (b. Aug 1896) Rigali.  My mom gave me this photo as a gift, I believe she had purchased it at an antique shop while on a trip to Iowa.  It’s a very delicate photo.


I did some research on the family, but could not find very much.  But I left my research tree up on and someone researching the Rigali family later found it.  She contacted me hoping I was related and to learn more about her family.

I learned from her that these two had a younger brother named Anthony Joseph and she was his great grand-daughter. Unfortunately, all I could offer her for her tree was this photo. She received it as a high resolution scan on 27 September 2010.
