Welcome to IG website Do you have any names and dates I have researched Trabia alot. Both names Caruso and Cancilla are prevalent
You know that San Nicola is a frazione (suburb) of Trabia so those records are in the town of Trabia. The church the used if they resided San Nicola is Santa Petronilla . IS your family Frank and Frances Cancilla?

Heres a birth record for a Francesco Cancilla

Thanks Marty. I will check with my family to see if they are related. Also, have you ever heard the story about Jewish Sicilians who had to pick Italian names in order to stay in Sicily? I believe that it was in the King Ferdinand era (Spain).
I have the coat of arms for Caruso-Balistreri with the information of how Caruso was named an official of the Trabia, by this King.
