Just e-mailed to Robert. I thought he was you.My mom and I are trying to learn the historical derivation of the name Alberti--seems that it could be French, German, Arabic, and a host of other things and we are curious. We are finding a host of people with the name but no definition about what it means or where it came from. I'd be curious if anyone knows. And in case you doubt I'm your relative, here's another clue: Did you ever get together with Tony Sferlazza after I wrote to you? So I am by derivation an Alberti from NY.
