Mike B. - My mother confirmed that she and your mother are cousins. She recalls your family moving to Florida and that they referred to your Grandfather as "Mickey" and mentioned one of your uncles was an air force pilot, once stationed at Nellis AFB.
Wow, I haven't been on this site in a while. What a pleasant surprise to see your post. I've recently had the urge to pick up the research again. I don't have much, but will share what I know. I'm living with Mom in Clearwater, Fl.
Researching the names; Matteis, Braca, Moscariello, Cristiano, Tortoriello, and Tedeschi.
Saw your message while I was cleaning up my yahoo account. Nice to hear back. I am starting my research back up again too. My Mom and I are planning a trip to Italy in the next couple years so time for me to get back at it. If I find anything new, will let you know as well! -Deanne
