Lutz Family Genealogy Forum
Romano Lutzia was a coal miner who lived in Beaverdale, PA in 1919. He was 40 years old at the time of his son's birth. That son would be my father-in-law who is now deceased.
On his birth certificate it states father was Italian. Lutzia's son was not baptised until the age of 3 after his mother and her family moved to New York. He was given the surname of the man she was going to marry a year later. The child is now 4 years old with a new identity and lives his life out believing the man who reared him was his biological father. He uses his baptism record as identification to go into the army because his mother told him he did not have a birth certificate as he was born at home. Obviously, it was very important for his mother to continue with her secret which was kept very well.
My husband's DNA is showing connection to allot of German, English and Russian names. So, it is possible the mother lied on the birth certificate about the father being Italian. If I could just find a descendent from this man, it would be the key to all questions.
