    My great grandfather was Vittorio Sartoris and was from Rueglio and also my grandmother and grandfather who came to the U.S. and died here. My dad also was Victor and I am Victor and I am 87 years old. I have a great family tree back to the 1700 and would like to know if I have any relatives still living in Rueglio.
    Thank You, Victor A. Sartoris
