Famiglia Gambino - La Rocca

Postby Marilena_Palermo » 26 Nov 2014, 14:57

Salve, sto cercando di avere notizie sui discendenti di Domenica Gambino, arrivata a New York nel 1919, e di Antonio la Rocca, arrivato qualche anno prima, entrambi di Palermo. Avevano 3 figli, Francesco, Mariano e Rosolino, che arrivarono a ny con la madre.
vorrei conoscere i nomi dei figli e dei nipoti, cercare di rintracciarli.

Domenique (Nika)...it's me Sally! lol!
Call me anyway, we will share "whatever" info we have, maybe you know something that I don't know>>>that just might help us find more information about the family that stayed in Sicily.
I have been checking this site for 3 months now...hoping for Marilena Palermo to reply (she posted back in November 2014)...it would be great to hear from her!
Talk to you soon!
