    Hi: I always went by the name Garfold. My grandfather went by Garofalo. I am trying to find out my true last name and want to become a citizen of Italy. I have always lived in the United States. My grandfather’s citizenship papers are being mailed to me by a cousin who has them. She told be my grandfather was from Abruzzi, Italy and on his citizenship papers it reads: Angelo Raffaello (not sure of middle name spelling) Garofalo. Middle name could be spelled Raffaell, Rafaelle, Raffaella, or Raffaelo, of another way. I won’t know until I get the true citizenship papers. I was told my Dad went by Garfold, because when everyone migrated to the U.S. they could read the handwriting and the o’s looked like d’s and a’s like o’s. It is gets even stranger, because even though my grandfather’s last name is spelled Garofalo on his citizenship papers, on his gravestone is Garfolo. He was born in 1888 and died in 1979. If you have information and/or know any names of churches where I get info, please contact me. I am hoping to get this information for free. I was in Italy in 2001, and at that time I did not know anything about my last name. Thank You, Judy Garofalo.
