Italia family

Postby litalia » 20 Jul 2013, 07:56

My name is Larry Italia. I am in Sicily on holiday staying in
Taormina but while here will visit Lentini and. Carlentini where
my grandparents immigrated to the U.S. from.

I'm not sure when. 1910? 1915? My grandfather's name was
Sebastiano Italia, my grandmother Sebastiana Italia, maiden name
Greco. They went to Omaha, Nebraska like many from Carlentini.

I'm told the family name is correct, not an "Ellis Island" name ( Andolini/Corleone).
Some of you seem really great at finding histories, anything you can share
would be much appreciated.

EDIT TO ADD:
Looking at the manifest posted by Paola, I noticed that Sebastiano was "lined out" which could indicate that he did not sail on that voyage in August 1912.
I located a manifest in September of 1912 which appears to indicate that he did sail.

On the first manifest - he leaves his father GAETANO in Carlentini
On the second manifest - he leaves his mother ROSA CURA(?) in Carlentini
On both he is headed to Omaha to his brother Giuseppe at 1004 Howard St.
