LOOKING 4 POLLINA FAMILY IN SICILY THAT OWNS SHIPPING FLEET

Postby Pollina » 28 Jan 2007, 03:16

I recently learned that my grandfather's (deceased) family is from Sicily. I am going to vacation in Italy in the next year or so and would like to see if I could get in touch with his family.

Last name is Pollina.
My great grandfather immigrated who was named is Salvatore Pollina.
Family is from Sicily
Family currently owns a shipping fleet and also has a grocery store during the depression.

Pollina is a pretty common name so I know this is a needle in a haystack, but hopefully the shipping fleet I mentioned above might help.

Thanks,
Monique

Hi Pollina.

Welcome to the forum.

In addition to the information suanj requested, it would help if you provide information on where he settled in the US & names & birth years of wife & children.

What documentation have you obtained for him & his family?

Look forward to helping!

I'm having a hard time finding information because most of the Pollina's in my family have died except my Grandfathers sister (who I lost contact with), but I was able to get some information off the Ellis Island site.

Go to EllisIsland.org and do some searches and you might be able to find the records. I found my great grandfather in minutes!!
