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.
