Costa Family from Capaci, Palermo, Sicily

Postby TinaSini » 25 Jan 2006, 23:07

I would like to make a connection with the Costa Family from Capaci. Bartolemeo Costa was born about 1876 to Rocco Costa, he came to America in 1903 and them made 3 more trips between Italy and America each time bring another family member back with him. On his last return trip he brought his wife Serafina (Drago) born abt 1884 (she is the daughter of Erasmo Drago) and his children Catrina and Maria.

I am hoping to make a family connection,
Tina :)
