Lynette. My grandfather, Alfonso, took his family to Algiers to find work. He and my father, and another son, Joseph, were cabinet makers and didn't have much work in Lama. The whole family emigated to the U.S. in the early 1900's, and settled in Chicago. Never knew if my Grandfather had any brothers or sisters. My father used to receive postcards from a relative in Pennsylvania, but I didn't know who it was. This is very interesting, isn't it?
