MILIOTO/MILIOTE,PICCOLO,ESMIRNE,APICELLA/APICELLO,RETALIATE/Rettagliata HAVE LOTS OF DIFFERENT PAPERS WITH DIFFERENT NAMES ON THEM I BELIEVE THE MILIOTO CLAN WAS FROM SICILY AND THE APICELLA/PICCOLO CLAN WERE FROM THE NAPLES AREA ANY HELP OR INFO WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED !

Hi and welcome to the forum, :lol:

I think it would be easier to help you if you started with one name or family at a time. Can you start with one immigrant, give us first and last name, approximate age, dob, or date of immigration, and place where immigrant went. Do you have any census or ships manifests yet? That might be the best place to start.

Many Miliotos came to the US. It would help if we had a first name or date of birth or immigration to help. If you would like to look through the names yourself, here is a link.

As you can see most are from Sicily.
