This is also the story of a loving son, husband, and father who described himself as a business man whose job was to serve the people what they wanted. Al Capone was all of these. He died in and almost seven decades later, it seems that anywhere one travels in the world, people still recognize his name and have something to say about who he was, and what he did. Everyone has an opinion, and yet within the deeply private world of his extended family, there is an ongoing quest to find definitive answers about its most famous member. The saying goes that family history is often a mystery, and that all families are closed narratives, difficult to read from the outside.
