      Francesco (Frank Sola) was my paternal grandfather. My late father was Domonic Sola. Frank Sola lived in Sydney Nova Scotia, Canada before he became a US Citizen, He lived in Chelsea, MA for many years. I have a copy of his parent’s birth certificates so I know we are taking about the same person. Do you happen to know who Dominico or Antonetta Caizzo’s parents were?
