Trapani and its Province in the World!

Is it possible to know where descendants of Siciliani emigrated from Trapani Province are today?
After 150 years of emigration from Sicilia, the answer is quite difficult.
At ItalianSide, working with statistical data about our readers, we tried to help to solve this problem.
We started from this point: if someone comes to our Internet Site looking for info about an Italian town, a village, family, genealogy, ancestry tours or tradition, it is because he is connected in some way with that town! Every month on we receive thousands of requests coming from all over the world, seeking info about these subjects in Sicilia.
Of course this is only an attempt to map where Siciliani from Trapani are today:our experiment has no scientific foundation but it’s an empirical proof about the spread of Siciliani in the world.

2) Map is updated daily: now it shows statistics from July 1, 2013 to yesterday.
3) At the moment the map shows only last 10000 entries in our statistics.
4) Only one marker is shown for each town in case more Siciliani are in the same town.

  1. My family came from Camporeale in Trapani, the names are Cinquemani, Palazzo and Geraci. I believe I still have relatives there. My Grandparents were Married in Trapani and i have there Wedding Picture. My Grand Mothers maiden name on my Mothers side was Maria Geraci, My Grandfather was Leonard Palazzo. My Father’s Parents were Sebastiano cinquemani and My Grandmother was Francesca Maltese. I still have relatives there.I was extremely close to my Maternal Grandparents as both my Paternal Grand parents died before I was born in 1945. I would love to see Trapani and I know I could never afford to see it. but My Grandmother Maria who I am named after made me promise to see her town and her family. My life has has many hardships. How can I know who might sponsor me and my husband to visit my family. My parents are gone now and all my Grandparents children. My heart is in Trapani. they immigrated to NY settling in Brooklyn in 1906 or 7 not sure. Can anyone help me reconnect o my beloved family. I will be 73 next month and all I always wanted was to see the place where Maria Gerci (Palazzo was born and raised… Can anyone help me full fill her wish for me. She was my heart. I don’t want to visit like a tourist, I want to connect with my family, I know I have. thank You.

  3. My grandmother was born in SalemI on 9-29-1890. Her name was Antonina Sala, daughter of Baldassare Sala. My grandfather, Frank Di Matteo (DiMatteo?), married my grandmother date unknown. I am visiting Sicily in October and hope to visit Salemi, but I have little information on my grandfather. He was the brother of Salvatore Di Matteo and Dominick Di Matteo. Cousin of Sam Bovelli. I believe their mother was Christina Di Matteo. I am interested in finding out where my grandfather was born

  4. My family name in Sicilia is Mandina, but changed to Mendina when entering the U.S. at New Orleans. My Father and Grandfather have told the story that our Mandinas (Gaetano Mandina, married to Maria Zafuto) are from Salaparuta, Sicilia. I would love to find more information as I currently live in Europe. Grazie-
