    We will be in Taormina on September 14 and would like to visit Gualtieri Sicamino on the 15 or 16 of September of 2016. My mother was born in Gualtieri on March 28, 1915 and I would like to visit her hometown and perhaps seek out where she lived and where some of her relatives are buried. Also to see if there is a record of her family or family members.

    What would be the best way to travel there from Taormina?

    My mother’s maiden name was Domenica Palma Formica. She came to America in 1925 or 1927.

    Any information you could provide me would be most appreciated.

    Hi Edward,

    My name is Frances Fama Wolf and we might be related through marriage. My great grandfather, grandfather and father had the surname Fama and were from Gualtieri, but my grandfather’s wife (my grandmother Giuseppina Parisi)was related to a Carmela Arico through the marriage of her sister to an Arico.
    The Arico family lived in North Brunswick, NJ. I do not sure if they are the same people, but we both have ancestors from this town. I go yearly to visit family and friends and I have wonderful memories. Let me know if you ever go!
