Alberto Castello – AP news and AP index cards – 1958

I saw this photo in a 1958 newspaper and thought I would do some research on his family.

In my research I found a card catalog that I had never seen before:
Associated Press Card Index to AP Stories

So now I have one more place to look for old interesting newspaper stories.

Alberto Castello

born: abt 1886

wife: Maria

was kidnapped in Sicily.

he is from: Copiague, Suffolk, New York, USA
Fredericksburg, Virginia
The Free Lance-Star – Nov 14, 1958

other records found:

Associated Press, Name Card Index to AP Stories, 1905-1990
Name Card Index to AP Stories (series 1) Capiello – Corden Caruso – Castro
Alberto Castello

Associated Press, Name Card Index to AP Stories,

The importance of this index card is that it gave a resolution to the story by telling us that he was freed by Sicilian captors and was back at home.

I hope this has given you a new research tool.

Thank You

Retired General Motors designer who now works on subjects dealing with genealogy. I create trees using items I find in old Google News Archive newspapers and I contact other tree owners notifying them about the news item concerning their relative and send them a link to the tree I created. I post a screen print of the news item on the tree for others to copy, so that my work will benefit others. Occasionally, I will post about the tree I created or the item that I found, always with a "how to" in-bedded in the post. I want my blog posts to help others with their family trees or with their genealogy experiences.
