My family name is LaMantia. Not sure of the origins other than I believe the family name originates in Sicily, La Termine possibly?
My father was an only child and my grandfather's family has all deceased.
SO I am really trying to learn more about my family name in both Italy and Chicago.
Grandfather: Sam LaMantia born 1915, I believe.
Some of his siblings: Brother John LaMantia
Sister Edith LaMantia
Sister Agnes LaMantia
All Chicago, Bridgeport area originally, then Taylor Street. Not sure when they came to America or anything.
If someone can give me a clue as to where to start or how to do this.
