Nicosia Family in Vicari, Sicily

Postby edouglass » 19 Dec 2013, 23:19

I know by my username it does not sound like I am Sicilian. It is on my mother's side so naturally I do not have the Sicilian last name. My family came from Vicari in the early 1900s and landed in New Orleans, Louisiana, United States where we have, over time, migrated to Texas. I am not having much luck finding anything out. As you see, the surname is Nicosia from Vicari, Sicily. My great-grandfather's name was Paul Nicosia and my great-grandmother's name was Francis Barcia (maiden name). If anyone could divulge some information on my family's history, I would be forever thankful.
