Re: Looking for Vinci Family from Palermo owned Olive Farm

Re: Vinci, Carl from Italy, died in US

Jinny so sorry it took me 3 years to write back. Sure let's compare names. My great-grandpa was Carl Vinci. See info above. I am thinking my Vinci's came from Messina area in Sicily but who knows if there might be a connection.

Re: seeking Grandma's birthdate-Paola Presti Cozzo

My Aunt can no longer remember her mom's birth-date but thinks she was born in October. The birth-date year range is 1897-1906 circa.

Re: seeking Grandma's birthdate-Paola Lo Presti

Also my Grandpa De Juno, Paola's husband seems to have had his last name "americanized". In Italy his last name has been spelled D'Aguanno and D'Aquanno. But that is separate from my grandma's birth.
