Hi! I live in New Orleans (was born and raised here.) was Frank "Chick" Tarantino (my granny's father.) He and his wife Florence Fernandez lived in the Lakeview/West End area of New Orleans, which recently was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina. Chick Tarantino was an oyster shucker at a restaurant in the French Quarter. Florence Tarantino raised pigs for the local amusement park's "greasy pig" contest. She also was a bootlegger during prohibition. there as well. All of my family lost everything in the storm.
