Interesting Facts

Alberti's relative Baldo Tamborini was also killed in the Hillcrest Mine Disaster.
They were both from Mornago with the same name of father but different name of mother.
Notes from C. Vollmer: My great grandmother claimed Alberti and Baldo were "only children" in their families.
Family information from Hillcrest cousin Luigi Tamborini claims they were cousins of each other and of him.
The cousins were buried beside each other in the Hillcrest Mass Grave (Italian section).
There were many Tamborini families in Mornago.
Information on birth from Archivio Storico della Diocesi di Milano and the comune of Mornago.
