Francesco Tizzani was my Grandfather. He died when I was 3 years old but I remember his face and his love for me. I am interested in any photo's or military records. I know he fought in WW1.

Phyllis, I tried researching and couldn't find a record of him serving in WW1 in the US. Perhaps in Italy? I found one photo (above) and a draft card for WW2 (information in the introduction). Perhaps someone else can find more?
