Mazzola and Martini

I have been thinking about taking a trip to San Donato val di Comino in 2005.

I am not very close with my immediate Italian family outside of my mother, Rita (Mazzola), but I was curious to see if there were any Mazzolas out there.

My grandparents, Francesca (Martini) and Armando Mazzola were born in Frosinone. My grandmother was born in Alvito but her family moved to San Donato. My grandfather was born in San Donato and immigrated to Brighton when he was young. He returned to Italy after World War II and married my grandmother and brought her back to Brighton.

My father is very much into genealogy but has been concentrating on his Irish family mostly. My mother grew up on Winship Street in Brighton but seemed to deny that other Mazzolas were related to her. She is now ill and I would like to get a clue to my Italian side before she is gone.

Thank you,
