Caropepe Sicily Tomaselli

Post by kristineeverson » 01 Sep 2013, 20:29

I am currently trying to research my Italian ancestors and having no luck with the family from Sicily. My great-grandparents were Carmelo Accorso and Josephina Maria Tomaselli. They came to New York from Sicily in the early 1900s. I know that Josephina's father was Horatio Tomaselli, and was supposedly a political bandit that died somewhere in the caves of Sicily. Josephina had at least one sister whose name was Nunzia, but not sure who she married. I have no information on Carmelos family. Any information would be greatly appreciated!
