My father's brother died a few weeks ago and I had a chance to talk to my cousin Michael who lives in El Rio California.

He said our great grandmother was Greek and our family coat-of-arms is on the capitol building in Florence, Italy. Supposedly our family dates back before the Medicis and was a founding family of Florence. He gave me a lot of other interesting information.

......................and here I believed we were 100% Sicilian.

Isnt it just great though when you find something like that.

I wish I could Emmy, but I'm afraid I simply wouldn't know where to start.

I wasn't even sure our family coat-of arms was authentic but my cousin said a fellow from Florence, Italy assured him it was.
