I am researching for relatives from Messina;

My Grandfather was Guiseppe Casella, married to Francesca Puritana...had brothers; Santo, Nicholas, Pietro and perhaps Basil as well as a sister Rose who passed at a young age.
We have numerous relatives from Australia, (Perth) as well as United States; New York Pennsylvannia, etc.

Any information wilol help in my quest

Hope you still check this. We are trying to find out more about my son-in-law's family who came from Sant'Angelo di Brodo, Sicily. There name is Tomeo. One, Giuseppe TOMEO (1912), married Catena CASELLA (died 1995, San Piero Patti, Sicily) about 1940 (date not known). They had children, Nina (1951), Sara and Antonia.
If any of this fits with your research, I can be contacted at ****@****.***

Thanks for the information. I'm not looking (at the moment) for US connections. We are Western Australians. I will try my local FHC, but I understand everything today is on computer. The names I am looking for are not showing up in the IGI. However, the phone book might help. They have recently been back to Sicily and met many extended family, and this got them started, but didn't know how to search at that time. Hence, my starting to help.
Regards
Stuart
