Many thanks to all on the list who have shared their experience and knowledge with those of us who are just starting to learn about our Sicilian heritage.  I just receive a response to one of the letters I sent requesting information about . my grandparents. I received a marriage certificate for my Father's maternal grandparents who married in Corleone in 1879.

It names the parents of Damiano TRAINA, age 26, b. in Belmonte as Vincenzo TRAINA and Margherita BENIGNO and the parents of my ggrandmother Agnese BONO age 21, b. in Misilmeri as Damiano BONO and Maria TRENTACOSTA.

Are there any others on the list with these surnames? My Grandmother was only 4 when she came to America and my Father did not know the names of his ggrandparents. My Paternal Grandfather was born in Misilmeri, so I know a little about it, I think I have located Belmonte as Belmonte Mezzagno on a map of Sicily.

Is there another Belmonte? Now that I have found these "new" members of my family, I'm looking forward to finding some new cousins.
