Rinella

Postby Chief Barrante » 18 Feb 2014, 12:14

looking for leads on the family name of Rinella.especially any lnks ot the town of Rinella ? and did most Rinella's come from Termini Immense or Trabia or Salina? Does the Rinella name go back to the little fishing village of Rinella on the Island of Salina about 50 miles off the coast of Sicily?
Since surnames often tie to a clan from a geographic location, I suspect it might, but I have never done the research to track ground zero on the name.
My maternal Grandmother was Marina Barrante (born Rinella) daughter of Anthony Rinella and Tomassina Calderone.
But who are Anthony Rinella's parents? and siblings names? Dates of Birth and where did they all settle in the USA becauseI find Rinella's in Illinois, Ohio, PA, CA, NY, Canada and other places in the USA---did they all come to the USA? Did anyone stay behind in Trabia Sicily?
Thank you
