What a great story! It's a shame that only a small portion of the records were rescued.

Genealogy "how-to" books always mention school records, but I've never actually heard anyone say they've managed to find any. This gives me a glimmer of hope . . .
Researching following surnames: Russo Tiesi, Terranella, Randazzo, Pancamo; and the following towns: Chiusa Sclafani and Campofelice di Fitalia
