Subject: Re: [{ITA-SICILY-L}] Introduction

I, too, am researching Valguarnera. My surnames for this comune are are Mazzola, Interlicchia and Rivoli.  Since I am actively researching this area, I can be on the look-out for your surnames. Can you possibly give me a little more detail? If not, when I come across your surname, I can jot it down and e-mail it off to you.

Welcome fellow Valguarneran!!

Subject: [{ITA-SICILY-L}] My Sicilian Families


Just wanted to post my Sicilian families again to see if anything "clicks" with anyone. Please let me know!


INTERLICCHIA, Alfredo - ggrandfather was born in Catanzaro, Italy; his brother Armando was born in Strongoli, Calabria, Italy; gggrandfather was Salvatore and gggrandmother was Roslia Pecoraro; the family may originally be from Valguarnera, Sicily


RIVOLI, Vincenzo - ggrandfather was born in Valguarnera, Sicily; he married Catherine Di Siervi in NYC in 1923; his parents are Alfonse and Palma Mazzola?


MINEO - this family is from Bagheria, Palermo, Sicily. I have it back to 1720 with documentation. Huge family; gggrandfather Francesco (b. in Villarosa) immigrated to PA in 1904; married Michelina Carlucci in

Villarosa, Caltanissetta, Sicily


TOMASELLO - this family branches off from the Mineo's; farthest back I have is Giaochino married Maria Ganci before 1793 in Bagheria, Palermo, Sicily


SCIANNA - married into the Mineo's; farthest back I have is Giacinto married Francesca Di Leonardo (also seen as "di Nardo") Feb. 1729/30 in Bagheria, Palermo, Sicily


LO MONACO - another branch of the Mineo's; married into the Scianna's; farthest back I have is Lorenzo married Benedetta or Domenica before 1750 in Sicily, most likely Palermo, where their children were born


GAGLIARDO - also seen as "Guagliardo"; branch of the Mineo's; married into the Scianna's; farthest back I have is Domenico married (1) Maria Aguglia before 1752, and married (2) Vincenza Bisconti Jan. 7, 1771 in

Baghreia, Palermo, Sicily


These are all the main branches I have researched so far. I have a website dedicated to my Italian families with links to documents, photographs and more details, which can be seen at:
