Hola or Hello!

Hablo Espanol pero prefiro escribir en Ingles. I too am from a Rulli family and I have just started researching my genealogy. Here is what I know:

My great-grandfather, Saverio Rulli, came over from Italy (probably late 1800s) and settle in Indiana. I've been told he was from somewhere in Calabria. Three of his brothers also came over, Salvatore, Vito and Rosario, all settling in South Bend. Saverio married a Hungarian woman, Anna Raszipovits (sp?) and they had three children, Anthony, Carmela and Phillip. His brothers also had children but the only one I know about it Vito whose three sons were name Felix, James (Jimmy) and Anthony (Tony). I think most of them stayed in the South Bend area. There are still quite a few Rulli's out there.
