Francesco had siblings Vito, Vicenzo Rosa, Joseph, Michelle and Thresa. The above name Domenico Bertolino's parents were Vincenzo Bertolino & mother was Caterina Ruggirello. Their children were Domenico (mentioned above) Antonino, Francesco and Guiseppe.

My Bommarito Family came from Palermo, Terrasini area. My Greatgrandfather was Pasquale (Charles) Bommarito D.O.B. 1876 and his wife was Arita Loiacane D.O.B. 1873. Their Children born in Sicily were: Grazia D.O.B. 1903, Matteo D.o.b. 1893, Luigia D.o.b. 1896, Giovanni D.o.b. 1895 and Antonia D.ob. 1901.

From what I understand in reading an Italian link, the town of Paparella San Marco is now known as Valderice.

Hopefully one of our Italian posters can confirm, my Italian is only so-so!!

Good Luck

Other family related : Jacobucci or Jacopucci (from Central Italy).

Hi,

I am from Gloucester, where there is a sizable Terrasini population including some Bertolinos. Back in Terrasini in the 1860s, my g-g-g-aunts (LoChirco, Evola & Tocco families) married Bommaritos. Have you read Blood Washes Blood by Frank Viviano? There are a few references to Bommaritos. Book is about his genealogy research project set in Terrasini to find out details of an old murder. Excellent read! You may not learn any genealogy pertinent to your search, but you'll get a feel for time and place. See my website about my project.
Good luck,
