my father's father came accross in the early 1900's with the name portelli, he had cahnged the last name in 1945's (or so). having been a resident of brooklyn in the 1940's it was hard for an italian to get a job he changed the name to insure that his family would be taken care of. he also came over from malt. other than that the information has been hard to find in tracking down family members. if you have any other quesions please feel free to contact me via my email
