Nicolo tarantino and rosa manfre lived in New orleans, they were my (and julie's) great great grandparents. We are both new orleans natives. Their son Frank (chick or chicot) Tarantino married Florence Fernandez, those were our great grandparents. Frank and Florence moved to the west end area, in the early 1900's, when our grandmother Thelma Tarantino was born. My mother raised me in that neighborhood (now called lakeview) and I raised my children there as well. We were all driven out by the levee failures and floods after Katrina.
