1930 Census--Joe Garagiola


St. Louis was home in 1930 to at least two future baseball players--this one appeared for a short time as a host on the Today Show. Joe Garagiola is enumerated in 1930 with his parents, John and Angeline Garagiola, at 5446 Elizabeth Avenue, St. Louis, Missouri. He like neighbor Yogi Berra was of Italian extraction. You can search the 1930 census index for your ancestor at Ancestry.com but he's probably not enumerated as a baseball player or a talkshow host.
