Some families know a great deal about their roots; others know
very little. This site is my attempt to record what I've learned about our family history. In these modern times, families
tend to be scattered all over the country, if not the world.
Louis DeFlumeri (sometimes DeFlumere) was born on May 26, 1911, in Natick MA. Until
last year, the only thing I knew about my maternal grandfather was that he was Italian and he was dead. My mother was only three years old when he was listed as MIA in WWII, so she barely remembers anything
about him. My goal in researching my grandfather was to help her fill
in the blanks and come to terms with her past.
