Subject: [{ITA-SICILY-L}] Lena from Antonina

 

-- [ From: johnkath * EMC.Ver #2.5.02 ] --

My great-great-grandmother's name was Antonina Terzo Nicolosi and she went by the name Lena also. In fact, tradition had it that Lena was the name given to all her first born granddaughters in each of her sons' families (Likewise Ralph (Raffaele) Nicolosi, her husband's name, was given to the first born boys). They had to stop that naming practice because there were too many Lena and Ralph Nicolosis. The Nicolosis migrated from Monreale, Sicily to Marion, Ohio from 1900-1910.
