    I am trying to locate relatives to my father and grandparents. They came to the United States from Sicily and their last place of residence is listed as Pietraperzia, Sicily.
    My grandfathers name was Salvatore DiPerri and he was born in 1880
    My grandmothers name was Palma DiPerri and she was born in 1883. Her name prior to marriage was D’Angelo. I do not know if they were born in Pietraperzia or if they had any brothers or sisters. Any information you can provide will be much appreciated.
    Thank you,
    Wanda

    I am looking for information on my Father, grandfather and great-grandfather and beyond. My father’s name is Vincenzo Salvatore Falzone, My grandfather name is also Vincenzo Salvatore Falzone (married a Crocifissa DiNatale. He was considered missing in action I think 1917 – 1918. not too sure. However, My great-grandfather was Salvatore Falzone. My Dad, Vincenzo Salvatore Falzone married a Giseppina Grassa and moved to the United States in Oct. 1955. My grandfather Vincenzo Salvatore Falzone had 4-5 brothers and 1 sister. I think. Brothers names are: Salvatore, Giuseppe, Michele and the other brother’s name may have been Alessandro or Schanoro. Grandfather’s sister is Michela Falzone and I think she married a Francesco Vinci. Also one of the brothers Salvatore Falzone was born on June 14, 1894. Also the youngest member Michele Falzone was born on 7/10/1895. I would love to know the year my grandfather was born Vincenzo Salvatore Falzone (missing in action). I think their mother was Maria Antonia Vinci. I was unable to find information on my grandfather (DOB)and their other brothers Giuseppe Falzone and Alessandro/Schanoro (oldest sibling). Was told they all may have moved to PA. Anything you find would be greatly appreciated. Was told a lot of the records were destroyed during WWII.

    I am looking for information on my great-father and beyond. His name was Filippo Micciche, born 2/13/1889 and immigrated to the USA in 1913. I have found a record of marriage for him that lists his parent’s names. Father, Giuseppe Micciche and Mother, Antonina Nicastro. The passenger list from the ship he arrive in the US on shows place of birth as Pietraperzia. I can find nothing on his parents. Any help you could provide would be most appreciated.

      Janie,

      This is exciting. I hope you are still monitoring this. This is information I have on my great-great grandmother, Agostina Micciche, born in 1855.
      Arrived on the ship Patria from Palermo, Sicily. The first time she came was in 1911, then 1914 and again in 1919. She was 64 when she arrived. She came to her daughter, Maria Russo. She left her brother, Calgero Micciche in Pietraperzia.
      Sandra
