Bertone Family, 1937 New York

Bertone Family: Carmela Bertone, Carmelo Bertone, John Bertone, & Vincent Bertone. In 1937 my father took the whole family away from Castiglione, Sicily, Italy because my brother John was going to be going in the Italian Army. My father being a Naturalized American citizen took the whole family awayfrom the fascists dictator Beneto Mussolini who was getting too chummy with Hitler. In 1938-39 WWII started.
