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
born: abt 1886
was kidnapped in Sicily.
he is from: Copiague, Suffolk, New York, USA
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
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.
