Gerginti--Girgenti? Sicilian for Agrigento, capital city in the province of Agrigento.

My great Grandparents are from Sicliy also.. Pietro Modica Amore married Francesca Sinaguglia ( I only have there names no dates or further info on them except some of the childrens names. My great grandparents were killed by the mafia we think in the 1930's, my Uncle told me they lived in Palmero and had a store and olive grove.
My grandfather Guiseppe Modica Amore was born Oct 14 1888 according to documents born in Girgenti and came to America from Naples on April 1, 1905 his citizenship in 1915. He married 2 times in the US died 1964 in The Dalles,Ore. Guiseppe had some bothers we located on film Angelo born in 1890 and Carmelo in 1894..all in Siculiana. * Thanks from Maria
