The names I have are from the early 1900's. Charles(Ignazio) Rancatore came to US in about 1908. His parents were Carmello Rancatore and Maria Butera. My gmother was a Cancilla. Her parents were Marian Navarro and Sam (or salvatore) Cancilla. They were both from Trabia as far as we have records.

My father and grandfather are both from Trabia. My grandfather was a Salvatore Cancilla (just like me :D ). He had two wives, one's maiden name was Oppiano and I'm unsure of the other one. I know quite a few Rancadore's and few Buteras' living in the Bay Area out here in California but not sure where their lineage comes from.

The Rancatore's in San Jose had a funeral home business for years, does this sound familiar to you?
