I am not sure if any of the Mancuso's came over to Brooklyn, but it is possible. The ones we are related to were in Alia, Palermo, Sicily.  It is very likely subsequent generations came over. Maria Mancuso was married to Sebastian Tripi and they stayed in Italy. Their daughter Agatha Tripi, born in Alia in 1883, came to America between 1906 and 1910. She settled in Gary, Indiana and married Rosario Centanni from Alia. She died in 1970 in Ft. Myers, Fl. where she had moved in 1962 with her son Sebastian Centanni and his family (including my husband who was a child). It would be great to find out what happened to my husband's Mancuso cousins, so please let me know if you have any idea what part of Sicily your Mancuso's are from. Maria Mancuso was my husbands great grandmother. By the way, I am told Mancuso means "left handed" and my husband's father was left handed. I am left-handed as well, but our children and my husband are all right handed.

Subject: [{ITA-SICILY-L}] ITALIAN ROOTS ARTICLE IN FAMILY TREE MAGAZINE

 

The October 2000 issue of Family Tree magazine has a good article about "10 Keys to Finding Your Italian Roots--Now That's Italian!".  It was on the newsstand today. It is probably only published in English and in the USA, but I don't know for sure. This was the first time I saw this publication. I purchased it at Barnes & Noble.
