  1. My grandfather was from Salvatronda his name was Primo Umberto Perin or Perini. He arrived around 1900, we were told he was told to remove the i at the end of his surname, so we are not sure which is correct.
    He married a Scottish woman who spoke Italian. However, we weren’t taught the language. Any help would be appreciated.

The information I have found is that he was born November 5, 1889 or 1890. I do not have any information about his parents or any siblings. Help would be much appreciated! Grazie!

  6. My grandfather was Joe (Guiseppi) LoBurgio. He was born Palazzo Adriano in 1882.
    He died in Marion, Illinois, 1984. He was married Jennie (Angelina) LaSusa.

  7. I am interested in the names Italiano and Petralia before 1898. I have hit road blocks and have had no luck contacting anyone local to help (church, library, government) If anyone knows someone it would be great. I don’t have tons of money but certainly would pay someone something for assistance… or at least direction to help me get further.

    1. Hi Dan, first thing you need to consider is that Palazzo Adriano was founded (at least in the recent centuries) by medieval Albanian noblemen who migrated to southern in three waves. They were granted land and offices to populate and govern the south of Italy. There was a mass exodus and they mainly inhabited Calabria and Sicily.

      To this day they speak their own language and refer to themselves as Arberesh. The noble families were Musacchio, Castriota, Araniti, Matranga etc and Petralia (Petrela) was one of them. If you’re struggling to trace your lineage then you might want to contact an archivist in the Arberesh community.

    2. Hi Dan,
      My great grandmother was Francesca Italiano, from Palazzo Adriano, married to Giuseppe
      Alessi. Their children were Giovanni, Giuseppe, Giaccomo, Epifania and Angelina. Francesca and her children except for Angelina came to Colorado and California.

    1. Hi Patrick, as I explained to Dan above, Palazzo Adriano, as incredible as it may sound, was founded and inhabited by medieval Albanians who call themselves Arberesh. I’ve read before that Pacino is an Arberesh last name. There’s villages in Albanian inhabited lands names Paci.

  13. Im a Collida looking for information on my grandpas great grandfather and mother all the info I have is. His name and birthday

    Antonio Collida
    B: 14 Mar 1858 Palazzo Adriano, Palermo, Sicilia, Any help on his mother and father would be great I can’t find out any more info please feel free to email me any info on him and my family. I’m at a dead end

    1. Hi, Antonio COLLIDA (1858-1934) is the grandson of my direct ancestors Antonio COLLIDA (around 1782-1832) and Antonina CRISPI (around 1793-1843). His father of Antonio is Salvatore COLLIDA (born 23 january 1832 to Bivona, Sicilia) and his mother is Carmela COSTA, we’re cousins!! see you later Patrick of Marseille (France)

      1. Hello Collida (most likely) Cousins. My great Great Grandfather was Nicolo Tony Collida born in Platso, Palermo Sicila April 9th 1888 d. Jan 10, 1961 Beaumont, Jefferson Co, TX I was always told growing up that his mother died in childbirth with him. and his father died when he was young about 7 or 8 years old and he immigrated to the US with his sister. I have found that he immigrated to the US in September of 1907 … I have his Naturalization papers and the records from Princess Irene. He was 18.
        I had heard my Grandpaw say that there were Collida Cousins …. Nicolo’s Brother’s Family in Our area… Jefferson Co TX. He claimed that my great grandfather was disowned by the family because my great grandmother was not Italian. I have no concrete connection to this yet. But if this were the case then the people I suspect are his parents actually came to the US and didn’t pass in Sicily. A birth certificate or record for my Great Grandfather would be so helpful. Is there a source to find such in Platso, Palermo Sicila??

        BTW Ricky. I see that we are a DNA Match. Hoping to find some answers I have been looking on and off since the 90s. Thinking now I was looking in all the wrong places and may have had family here all along.

  14. My grandparents were from Palazzo Andriea . Antonio Bufalo and Paul Nicolosi. They settled in Independence LA and Hammond,LA. In the late 1800s. I would like to know if I have relatives that live in Palazzo Androea.

    1. Hello, my grandmother’s maiden name was Bufalo. My grandfather came to Independance, LA. In about 1900 or so. His last name was Buccola. Then about 1917 they moved to Pueblo, Co. where I was born.

  15. I am seeking information on the Cali family from Palazzo Adriano, Palermo. My great grandmother was Josephine Cali born March 8, 1871 in Palazzo Adriano. Daughter of Dominic Cali and Magdalene Fiore.

    She married my great grandfather Nicolo Cottonaro who was born in April 1869, in unknown Sicily, in April 1894 in Palazzo Adriano.

    She came to the United States in 1906. Eventually living in Murphysboro, Jackson County, Illinois until her death.

    Grandma Josephine had a sister named Dominico Cali born January 23, 1885, and a brother named Antonio Cali born in 1882.

    Dominico Cali arrived in New York City January 28, 1905 along with her brother Antonio.

    Vito Riggio was Dominico’s fiance, and was already living in Murphysboro when she and Antonio arrived.

    Several other passengers of the Konigin Luise were also headed for Murphysboro and Willisville, Illinois, to work in the local coal mines.

    I never knew my great grandparents, and I had a Sicilian genealogist tell me that the Cottonaro name was not from Palazzo Adriano, Palermo, Sicily. I’m not sure if this is true, as all records indicate my ggrandpa was born there.

    Any information at all…even a tiny snippet would be much appreciated.

    I’ll never be able to visit their land, but I dream about it! Their son my grandfather has been gone for over thirty years, I have no one else to ask or who knows anything.

    Thank you!

    1. @ Katie w: I was born a Cottonaro in Long Beach CA 1953. The grandfather that I had never met was named Nicolo Cottonaro, my father’s father . I, like you, wonder about Cottonaro ancestors.

  19. Ciao! I am looking for the marriage record from the Greek Church St. Nicolas in Palazzo Adriano. Antonino/Antonio Cicchirillo (or any variation of that spelling) to Rosa Bua, daughter of Francesca Bufalo Bua. I think it would have been around 1897-1900. They also had a birth record of a son Francesco born in Palazzo Adriano around the same time period and I assume, at the same church. I understand the church may have suffered the records being destroyed in the war and the cemetary is the only geneology record to study from that time period.

    1. Hi, could you please tell me your connection to the people you are searching for? They are the same names as relatives of mine I am searching for. Thank you

    2. Hi, I noticed in your post on January 2017 that you were questioning about Antonio Cicchirillo and Rosa Bua’s marriage records. Antonio and Rosa are my grandparents, their son Francesco, was my uncle Frank. are you related to them if so how? Maybe we can fill in the blanks of some of our relatives. I will be anxious to hear from you to know what you have found out and what do you know.

  20. My great-grandparents on my mother’s side (both maternal and paternal) came to the US from Palazzo Adriano. My grandmother’s family was Costa (my great-grandfather’s name was Mariano and his father’s name was Nicolo) and my great-grandmother’s name was Parrino, her father’s name was Antonio). My grandfather’s family was Crispi, my great-grandfather was Fillipo and my great-grandmother’s name was Maria Sabella. We also have cousins with the last name of Macaluso, LoBoso, Dipetro, Buscarino and Tamburello.

    1. Not sure if you have all this, but Nicolo’s father was also Mariano. he was married to Francesca D’Azzo. He also has a sibling Carmella who is my husband’s g grandmother. Mariano’s father was Giuseppe and he was married to Carmella Cuccia.

      Sciales is not very common today, Granà yes.
      Pietro

      1. Pietro,
        My great grandmother was Carmela Sciales. My dad was not sure but thought his grandmother’s last name was arbresh but wasn’t sure. Thank you so much for clarifying this mystery for me.

        1. Hi, do you know who Carmela’s parents were? My Great Grandmothers Mother was Nicoletta Sciales her sisters were Rosalie and Vincenza but I know there were other children.
          Thank you Nicole
