Surnames Potenzano, Sofia, Palmieri

Postby DonC » 24 Feb 2006, 09:22

I'll try this again, hoping there are new members.

Looking for any information about any of the surnames in the subject line. Sofia, Potenzano and Palmieri are all associated with Palermo and Termini in the late 19th C. Catuogno is associated with Naples and nearby San Rocco at about the same time.

The Sofias emigrated to Ellis Island in August of 1901 on the ship Sicilia via Naples. Unsure of where the Potenzanos landed, but suspect Boston.

I have considerable information about the Sofia's arrival, and would welcome additional info.

Don

As for the Palmeri's, you need to be a bit more specific...there's over 1000 of them! Your best bet is to either get a subscription to ancestry.com or visit your local library if they have a subscription so you can use it free of charge. Of course, you can register for a free 14 day trial, but I've been told not to register for it on a weekend!

Hope this helps!
