    Seeking criminal records of Joseph Cavallari or Joseph Cavallary

    Pamela Cavallary Newbie

      I found a newspaper article dated in 1940 in Kings County Brooklyn on my father in law, Joseph Cavallari or also known as Cavallary. He was convicted on federal charges and perhaps additional criminal records on years later. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.
