    Good day, i would like to find out about my grandmother and father who lives in Randazzo in the 1900. Mr grandfather was a builder. My father Guiseppe Panebianco was born in May 1933 – he was the youngest child of 10 children (the other siblings, Iolanda, Ida, Alfredo, Lina, Gino, (not sure of the other names) – most of them lived in Sicily while their children and grand children remain). His mothers name was Clorinda Sciacca. She came from another province in Sicily but moved to Randazzo when she married Guiseppe Panebianco. Her family disowned her for marrying below her standards. She had 2 sisters. I believe her parents were a count and countess of a region in Sicily – not sure of the name??
    Any information or photo’s of my grandmother Clorinda and her 2 sister plus her extended “Sciacca” family would be greatly appreciated. Also photo’s of my grandfather Guiseppe Panebianco please.

    Kind regards Iolanda Panebianco

    Hello, I am interested in finding out information on my great-grandparents who lived in Randazzo. My great-grandfather’s name was Giuseppe “Joseph” Alessi and my great-grandmother was Anna Zappala. Giuseppe was a shoemaker and owned a coffee shop next to St. Mary’s Church. Anna died young in 1900 at the age of 30-35, had eight children and is probably buried near the church. The children’s names were Maria Catena, Venera , Maria Concetta, Dominick, Salvatore, Giuseppe, Nancy and Josephina. My grandmother was Maria Concetta who had married my grandfather Angelo Sbrilli in St. Mary’s Church in November of 1908. They moved to America in 1914. My great-grandfather Giuseppi, was born around 1854 and died in 1945. He married a second time and had another five children…one of them was Gaitano. I would love to receive any additional information that you could provide to me or any photos that may be on file. Anything you could provide for the Alessi or Zappala families would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much. Barbara
