Can anyone tell me anything about Licata Agrigento? I am trying to trace my Great Grandmother back to Italy. I have been told she lived in Mezzojuso - but have not confirmed this. I believe her name is Josephine LaMonte - possibly Guiseppa La Monte / Lo Mante? She married my Great Grandfather Giovanni Guiseppe Sprufera / Sprofera but I am unable to find that name anywhere? I am trying to find out if Licata Agrigento is located near Mezzojuso? I have been told she came from a fairly wealthy family - who father was a politician or tax man? None of this has been confirmed - it may be just family lore.
licata is in Agrigento province, Mussomeli in in Caltanissetta provice:
the distance is 80 Km, 50 miles.
I think the surname is LoMonte (there are 7 families with this surname in Licata) and one in mussomeli .

try to send a letter to civil records office with all informations you have to:
Comune di Licata
Ufficio Anagrafe/stato civile
Piazza della Repubblica
I'm searching lost relatives and descendant of my greatgrandfather Vincenzo Genualdi (or Gennaldi or Genuardi) and my greatgrandmother Concetta Davola (their sons: Angela, Carmela, Antonio, Bartolomeo, Ernesto, Simone, Riccardo, Maria) went in Chicago,Ill., and New Orleans, in 1880-1920 from Sicily. Other family related : Jacobucci or Jacopucci (from Central Italy).

I can speak , read and write italian. I hace looke at the statistics on Grotte. I started a family tree some time ago. My fathers name is MICELI not too many in Grotte and not much history. My mothers maiden name was Licata. Grotte is 75% Licatas' plenty of history there, as a lot of the older family members are still around.
