Colona-Anselmo Connection

Postby Jeffro » 18 Feb 2009, 01:08

Does anyone have any information about the Colona family that came to the US from Sicily via New Orleans. Purportedly they were Anselmo and then changed the name to Colona in N. O. then moved up the Mississippi Valley many settleing in St. Louis and Western Illinois.

I have about 30 pages of raw data, but really can't connect the dots directly to my grandfather John Colona.
