TURCO family from Carlentini, Sicily

Post by michelemarie » 14 Apr 2009, 01:05

Turco Family info needed...

My GGF left from Sicily in 1907 (Antonino Turco) and my GGM left in 1906 (Giuseppina Mendolfo). They both came thru Ellis Island.

They and many other families left and settled in Omaha, NE.

They had sons, born in USA: Joseph, Louis, Sam. Looking for info on my GGF and GGM's parents or any family left in Sicily.
