Russell Magnaghi discusses the Italian community in Butte, Montana with Mrs. James Salki. Mrs. James Salki appears to be Edna Webking Salki. (She mentions that her parents' surnames were Webking and Thill, and I found a marriage record of a James Salki with an Edna Webking that matches this information.) This is a telephone interview. She discusses the history of the Salki family and how they came to Butte, the family saloon, other stores in town, Italian American organizations, and her own family background in the Upper Peninsula.
