Michael Gatti's Family Tree




Reunion Mug

2002 Gatti Family Reunion

On October 19, 2002 over 70 members of the Gatti Family came together for an unprecedented gathering in Staten Island, NYC. Some cousins saw each other for the first time in years and many met for the very first time. Relatives came from New Jersey, New York, Florida, North Carolina and California just to name a few. Whether from near or far, everyone felt at home.
