I knew there was a Bertolino family in our school system. I had seen their name in the school directories. But could we be related?

Last night at a parish meeting a William Bertolino was signed in on the attendance sheet. A scan of the room left me with one person I didn't know. After the meeting I introduced myself. Asked if we could somehow be related. After a quick discussion of what facts we knew about our families, we are. His grandfather Billy is my grandfather Vito's brother. Amazing.

I told him I knew his grandfather. That we had a picture of all the brothers. When I got home I called my dad, and asked him to scan in the famous picture. He scanned in two and sent them along. My mom gave me even more insight into the family.
