The Quilietti Family

The story of a Scots Italian family

QUILIETTI Betty or Elizabeth 1927 – VAN DRUTEN

Betty right back surrounded by her siblings. Husband Carel at the extreme back.

Betty Quilietti was born on 9th September 1927 in Edinburgh, Scotland, great  grandaughter of Leonardo Quilietti and Eletta Brucciani

She is the daughter of Jiulio Emilio  Quilietti and  Elizabeth Wilson.

She is also the Quilietti who started up the whole genealogy thing.  She was the lady who wanted to know from where she came.  So thank you Betty because you have saved our family identity and made us a whole lot closer than we were twenty years ago.

She married Carel Van Druten on 30th October 1946 in Rotterdam after a swift Romance which started in Fairleys Dance Hall, Leith, Walk, Edinburgh.

They have lived in Rotterdam all their lives and have two sons, four grandchildren and one great-grandchild.
