Searching for People born in Castelbuono and Frazzano

Postby siskojnash » 11 Mar 2011, 21:27

I am looking for information on the Castrovinci family from Frazzano, Messina, Sicily, and the Cusimano and Failla families from Castelbuono. Does anyone know if there are good websites or other good ways to get information on these families?

I was just hearing a little bit about the Faillas in Castelbuono. Apparently, the family was the first there to have electricity in their home. Both of the ones one family had. One was named Onofrio Failla. His wife, Esposita Piriano was supposedly a contessa from Savoy. What does that mean exactly? Is that a royal connection of some kind, or nobility? Onofrio was born in the 1850s in Castelbuono. Does anyone know anything about this family? It sounds like they might have been rather prominent there, maybe even still are for all I know.
