Raccuia / Raccuja Sicily

Post by nunziataalberti » 12 Sep 2011, 21:12

My grandparents were from this town. Both were born at the turn on the century. My grandfather came here when he was 13. His name was Charles Alberti, and his mother's name was Grace. He had many brothers and sisters, but there was little contact after he left. I have some information about his family, but not much. My grandmother was Nancy Magistro. I have a postcard and poster of the church, but I do not think it is there anymore.

Twnety years ago, my cousin's son found the house. I can not locate him to get the address. I just started researching the commune. Does anyone have any contact information for Raccuia (also spelled Raccuja). I will be in Europe/Italy again for uo to six months, starting in early 2012.
