Cannisaro Tranchita - Searching for info

Postby Jim2814 » 11 Jan 2010, 16:32

My grandfather, Vincenzo Lentini came to the US in 1914 from Marsala, Sicily. He came with his cousin Cassinaro Tranchita on the same ship. They were both headed to the same cousin in Elizabeth. However, I can not find any information regarding Cassinaro Tranchita. Perhaps he did not stay long and went back to Sicily.

If you have any information regarding Cassinaro Tranchita, please post a response. Thank you.

The correct name is Casimiro Tranchita and he left in Italy his wife Vita Lentini (Vincenzo's sister?).

Sorry, vj, I did not see your post

Yes. That would be him. I have an aunt named Vita who was named after my grandfather's sister. My grandfather also left behind a brother, who was a police officer in Marsala. My goal is to reconnect with my grandfather's family in Marsala.

Thank you all for your posts.
