Sbona Immigration to US in early 1900's

Post by bbrier » 18 Jan 2016, 20:26

I'm looking to learn more about my family history, particularly my great-great-grandparents who migrated to the United States from Melilli, Sicily, Italy in the early 1900's. The surname is Sbona - and their names were Carmello Sbona and Marie Sbona (maiden name Massella). Any information is greatly appreciated.
