We are also looking for information about the Cannamela family in Sortino, Sicily.

I do not know if this will help.

Carlo Piraneo
b. February 26 1880 - Sortino, Sicily

His parents were
Francesco Piraneo - Sortino, Sicily
Lucia Cannamela - Sortino, Sicily

Lucia Cannamela maybe Joseph Cannamela sibiling.

If I find more information I will share. If you have any more information could you share?

Thank you,

I too am looking for this same family I am Louis is my great grandfather. I am looking for the records of when they came over according to some postings in here he came over in 1903. I have search Ellis Island records and have come up empty. Secondly, if they did come over in 1903 then they should be in the census records of 1910 and 1920. But again I have not found them. I have found Louis. But not the father not sure if his name was Joseph or Giuseppe. The wife Vincenza or Louis neither come up in Ellis Island or 1910 and 1920 Census. Also looking for wives madian names and parents. Anything anyone has would be great thanks

You would find Italian females listed under their maiden name, regardless of marital status, if they traveled with children, the children would be listed on the ships manifest with their fathers surname.
They may not have come thru Ellis Island, they could of come thru Boston, Mass., or another port.
As for census, if they were here, not finding them on census could mean their name was badly mispelled.

Most likely they came in thru Boston so you caneither wait until some good sould herein will wave their magic image wand and bring up the 1903passenger lists or send an e-mail to their naturalization archives which they will check records for you in that department and let you know if they have naturalization records for the names you give them.

Their e-mail address isWaltham.archives@nara.gov =Peter=

On a hunch I just called NARA in Waltham Massachusetts and they confirmed that you can write or e-mail them for a check on the naturalization records in their archives for Cannamela, or anybody else for that matter. Just address the e-mail to archives dept. =Peter=

I have also found Rizzo & Cannamela in my family history search.

Then info i have is:

Santo Rizzo born 19/11/1886 & died 21/09/1933
he was married to Cesarea Cannamela born on 02/12/1894 & died 21/01/1920. They were both born & died in Sortino.
They were married on 02/01/1945 also in Sortino.

Don't know if that helps, maybe Cesarea Cannamela was the sister of Louis?
