Welcome New Friends and Old,


I have spent days redesigning this home page and finally had to just find one idea and stick with it!  I hope you like it.  After almost 20 years, I think I’m running out of original ideas for the website!


But, while I was doing all this fussing, I did add several more wills, a couple new articles about Castos in the news (I am proud to say that there are many articles online with Castos in law enforcement and the legal profession), and am getting rid of some old pages that are no longer relevant!


Until Next Time,




Text Box: Some tips for using the search engine:

Since almost everyone on here is a Casto, if you’re looking for George Casto, just search for George!  Seaching for “George Casto” limits your results.

Your results will be different if you search for GEORGE or George.

Vague words like “Census” or “Marriage” are not specific enough for good results. Try names, locations, or even years.  A search for 1915, for example, came up with 4 different events that happened to Castos that year.

When all else fails, contact me and have me research my off-line material.   I’ve got almost 30 books with Casto material in them and subscriptions to several online services so I really should be able to find SOMETHING on your line.

Also—VERY IMPORTANT—This search engine does NOT look at names in my online database.  You must go directly to that page to see who is in there.

Casto Connections!
