I am also trying to find any relatives still living in Cloz or who now live in the U.S. My grandfather, Joseph Rizzi was born September 5, 1895 in Cloz. His father's name was also Joseph. He had a brother, Bertolo, born in 1878, and a brother John, born in 1885, as well as 3 sisters (Speranza, Angela, and I don't know the third) and 2 other brothers (Geiss & Dolfo) that I do not have birthdates for. Angela died in 1975 in Cloz, while all others came to U.S. John, Joseph, Geiss, & Dolfo came to Cambria, WY, between 1914 and 1917 to work in the mines. Geiss died in Cambria and is buried there. His daughters are Noreena and Edith. I believe Dolfo's family moved to Superior or Rock Springs from Cambria. Bertolo's family moved from Italy to Brooklyn, New York. His sons and daughters (Sylvio, John Albert, Vige, Eni) would certainly have offspring there. If you have any records or information on the original 8 brothers and sisters above, I'd be very grateful.
