Family lines I am researching

Postby john_dominic » 18 Sep 2006, 23:58

Ok, I think i've never comprised a list together here, so i'll do it now (and i'll update it as time progresses):

From: Santa Cristina Gela and Piana Degli Albanesi, Sicily, Italy
Anastasi
Cannella
Cavarra (previously Kadare)
Cortese
Cucciarre' (previously Cucci, originally Kuqi)
Cusimano
DiMaggio (Previously Dhima)
DiVita
Farina
Franchi
Girone
Ingrassia
Musso
Fusci (Previously ?)
Patelmo
Picone
Peri (Previously Pero)
Virzi'

From: Caccamo, Sicily, Italy
Baldi

Peri **
Picone
Poggi
Storace
Valori
Vitale

From: Pedara, Sicily, Italy
Arcidiacono
Laudani

Zappala'

*note: before 1746 from Piana dei Greci (modern-day Piana degli Albanesi), before 1488 from Himare, Albania
**note: originally from Spain (according to family in Sicily)

Any connections and help in the years ahead will be appreciated!

[ P.S. The point of this is to let this sit, so search engines and future people can pick up on it (if you haven't noticed, google indexes this site), so for their purposes, i'm going to put them without their accents: Cucciarre Cucci Virzi Virzi' Zappala ]

My great grandfather was a Tomaselli and my great grandmother was a Laudani. They were from Pedara. I believe I also have cousins by the name of Pappalardo...also from Pedara.

Also, my maternal grandmother's name was Zappala.

My grandmother is a Laudani and married to an Angri. From the memories I have of visiting family in Sicily, I remember staying at a relatives place close to Nicolosi which looking in google maps, is quite close to Pedera.

I am quite interested in finding out as much information as possible about the Catania, and surrounding area, Laudani's.

Regards,
Eleonora.

Hi There, My paternal grandmother was Maria Virzi. Her father wa Carmello Virzi, and I think her paternal grandfather was Calogero Virzi.

Maria was born in Canicatti in 1909, and her father around 1838.

Is this in any way relevant or helpful?

Kind Regards
Patrizia
Grazie Patrizia
