Conticelli from Marsala, Sicily

Postby jenuits » 05 May 2012, 05:26

Hello, I have been trying to find more information on Andrea (Andrew) Conticelli's family. I know he was born in Marsala, Sicily and that he emigrated to the US in 1912 at the age of 17. However, information about his family before that is scarce. Any suggestions?
Thank you in advance for your input!
