Hi Tony,

Are you just looking to connect with people with the same surnames as yours, or are you looking for some information about the surnames as well?

Just in case you want to do the research yourself, the Family History Center does have microfilm from the town of Sciara, Sicily. The films cost about $5.75 a roll depending on your location. On the films, you can find copies of the birth, marriage, and death records of your ancestors.

Here is the link for the film numbers

Here is the link to find the nearest Family History Center.

Here is the address for the town in case you want to write for records.

Ufficio Stato Civile
Comune di Sciara
Piazza Castelreale, 30
90020 Sciara PA
ITALY

Here is a link from ICC that will help you translate your letter into Italian if you decide to request documents.

Here is a link from Pagine Bianche which is a telephone directory in case you want to find possible relatives still in the town with your surname.
