I found out my great grandparents came from Carlentini, Sicily and I wanted to find out some information about that area/town of Carlentini (( I think thats how you spell it? )) Any websites or information would be great. Thanks

Swipes,

Here's a site but it's in Italian.
http://www.cormorano.net/carlentini/index.html

And another which has been translated into English
http://www.carlentiniarchivio.it/versio ... e/home.htm

And another one in Italian.

Hope this helps.

That is a good site, if you look around there is a surname checker where you put in your name and see how many people in the town have it.

I'll look for some more, hope that helps.

Valarie,
Great find on the Omaha/Carlentini site.

Thanks Valarie, I did that for my town, and it was great. Savoca is the most popular name in my whole town, so I figured Swipes might like to look and see.
