Subject: Re: [{ITA-SICILY-L}] Curreri/Licata Family

 

I am interested in you Giarratano line. My great grandmother was Filippa Giarratano married to Luigi DiGiovanna. Her father was Domenico Giarratano.  She had at least two sisters. I don't know their names but one hadn't children the other had what are my Minutella relatives. A daughter Lillian who had married Rosario (Uncle Russ) and together had the chidlren Anita, who was killed in the 70s w/o children doing volunteer work in Taiwan, and Vincent Minutella whos in his 50s (60s).  I have come across other Giarratano researchers and woulod like to see where this road takes us. My great grandmother assumedly came from around Sciacca/Menfi area.

Subject: Re: [{ITA-SICILY-L}] Anyone know the name GIARRATUTO ?

 

I don't know anything about Giarratuto but my great grandmother was Filippa Giarratano who married Luigi DiGiovanna. Her father was Domenico Giarratano and I don't have her mother's name. Would any of this ring a bell? She lived in Bushwick, BKLYN when she came from Sicily and had at least two sisters. One had no children and the other was married and had a daughter, Lillian who married Rosario (Uncle Russ) Minutella and that is all that was on that branch. There well could have been other siblings of hers but I have no idea.  Hope there may be some kinda bell rung there.

 

My Best,

Alan

Subject: [ITA-SICILY-L] Toseriere

 

Hello.

Is anyone out there searching, know, or even heard of anyone with the surname Toseriere/Tossierri/Tosierri I just found out that my great grandfather, Leonardo Giovinco from Menfi Sicily had a first cousin who was Nadina / Antonina " Nettie" Tosieri. She was born in Menfi, lived in Bushwick, BKLYN for some time, and died about 10 years ago while living with her daughter ( I think Mary) in Seaford, Lynbrook, somewhere areound there in Long Island, NY.

My great grandfather's parents were Saverio Giovinco and Maria Buscemi, I do not know which one she is related through to be my great grandfather's first cousin. Apparently she was a real character who danced, sang, wore head garments, wore a lot of jewelry, told fortunes, and even divorced (quite a character for that generation, she'd be about 100 now if she were alive).  Any info at all would be helpful.

Thanks to anyone!

Alan

She came from Menfi or Santa Margherita di Belice, Sicily. She moved and lived in Bushwick, Brooklyn. She was good friends with my aunt, Rose Liotta Calandra. Any help at all is much appreciated!

Thanks,

Subject: [{ITA-SICILY-L}] Buscemi

Hello Buscemi researchers!

I just recently found out what may be yet another key in our Menfi/Bushwick/Buscemi clans (for those of us who know they exist but are baffeled as to how). Upon recent developments I found out that one of my great grandfather's cousins on the Buscemi side MAY have been Pietro Buscemi in Bushwick, BKLYN, from Menfi. Again, my great great grandmother was Maria (Marietta) Buscemi married to Saverio Giovinco in Menfi, Sicily.

Subject: [{ITA-SICILY-L}] Caratozzolo/Viviani

Is there anyone out there with this surname?? Anyone at all? My great great grandmother, Angela Safina, married Gaspare Di Giovanna. I understand that in her family she has had Viviani and Caratozzolo. Caratozzolo has been big in the Fun. parlor business. Viviani's have always been successful and, from what I can barely tell from what I understand, they are still in NY somewhat at least, if not more.

Please let me know!

Subject: Re: [{ITA-SICILY-L}] letter to Bonsignore in Sicily

Hello,

I am not really doing much more research on the Bonsignore line. My great great aunt, Giuseppina (Josephine) DiGiovanna married Francesco Bonsignore. They had five children... Kaspar Bonsginore, Emmanuel Bonsignore, Lena Guglielmino, Lucy Gouveia, and Rose Butera. The three daughters eventually moved out to CA and Emmanuel never had children.  Kaspar's clan stuck around the NY area, though I cannot say I know all of the descendants yet.... Francesco and Josephine followed their children from Menfi, Sicily to Bushwick, BKLYN. From there they branched out all over... I understand the daughters and their husbands went to CA (San Leadro, CA) because the weather was more like Sicily.

Subject: [{ITA-SICILY-L}] Michael Buscemi

OK!  Michael Buscemi seems to have been a first cousin of my great grandfather, Leonardo Giovinco. Leonardo was the son of Saverio Giovinco and Maria Buscemi from Menfi, Sicily.  Michael lived on Central Ave. ( I think) in Bushwick, Brooklyn, also called "Ridgewood" by some. The area was completely Sicilian and I do not know much else about him. There was also first cousins of my great grandfather with the last name Tesoriere, first name Nettie, who had daughters Mary and Frita. I can't seem to find these Tesoriere cousins but know that they are out there. Don't know much else about these Buscemi folks, there may have been a Pietro and Francesca there somewhere as well.  Hoping for some luck here,

Alan

My Liotta's are also from Santa Margherita... have we spoken?

My great grandmother was Vita Liotta married to Leonardo Giovinco.  siblings... Rose Calandra, Frank Liotta, Joe Liotta, and Mary Pero.. children  of Vita Abruzzo Liotta and Michele Liotta. all born in Santa Margherita...

Her first cousins were Victor Liotta, Mary Pero, Joe Liotta, and ughm, another that I can't recall... children of Andrea Liotta and something Abruzzo (have it somewhere of ya want) Many of the first names were the same as they were after the grandparents.

Subject: Re: [{ITA-SICILY-L}] MENFI surnames

...Viviani... my Viviani side goes back to Menfi, but only to my great great grandmother's sister, Anna (I Think) Safina married to ? Viviani and

then they both moved to Bushwick BKLYN. Her side of the family had the Caratozzolo funeral home in Bushwick, which buried many of my relatives, and I know of some of the family businesses here on Long Island, I just have to find some way of getting in touch with them.

So, my Vivianis don't really predate the 1860s or so as this is when the marriage to the Vivianis was about.  Thanks for the enthusiasm though, Brian, I really should contact these people as they are not far and I do know how, but to tell them we are related through my great great grandmother's sister seems like it may be coming from left field.

Oh Well,

Alan

Subject: [{ITA-SICILY-L}] Buscemi

Ok Buscemi researchers, I just found out that my great great great grandfather was Michele (Michael) Buscemi. Born and died in Menfi, Sicily. His daughter, Maria, married my great great grandfather, Saverio Giovinco. This means that whoever out there had a forefather with the name Michael / Michele Buscemi, he was probably a first cousin of my great grandfather, who .was born late 1890s and died in the early 1970s. Also, if his last name was Buscemi, he would most likely be the eldest son and of he is his grandson but not the last name of buscemi, like my great grandfather's brother, Michele Giovinco, he would have been the second eldest son as follows the tradition with how the children are named. I do remember hearing that there was a michael Buscemi in Bushwick, BKLYN and hope to hear from that researcher again!!!
