Thank you for your warm hospitality Sunday. It was great to meet you face to face! It was fun getting to know you some and I hope we will have many more meetings.
I really appreciate your digging into your family photo archives and pulling out so many pictures to share. I will begin scanning them shortly. They are a wonderful treasure to have.
Thank you for sharing your Italian family stories, too. It must have been interesting growing up as a California guy with Midwest parents. I left the Chicago area at age 13 and for me it was a difficult transition.
It was wonderful to learn of your real estate/property management experiences which are kind of a counter point to my corporate experience.
It was fun to hear about your television career.
You asked about how I made the connection to Veneziano. The enclosed Death Certificate with you grandfather’s signature naming parents was the final paper clue. As I mentioned, I would like to further confirm the paper trail via a Y-DNA test. My results have been measured.
I took the liberty to order a sampling kit from Family Tree DNA and it is enclosed. I would deeply appreciate your completing and sending the kit back to Family Tree DNA. I have paid for all the costs. A very sincere thank you for doing this.
