First, I shall say Happy New Year in advance.
I any of you would be interested in joining a site for the CURRERI - GUIRRERI (Guerreri) surname on Yahoo Groups, here's an opportunity.
HiI am Diana, and the owner of 6 other groups on Yahoo Groups,(for ie. "SCLAFANI Family Connection") and so I have just recently started this one (CURRERI - GUIRRERI family Connection) up.
Personally speaking, my family (Italian side) all came from Sciacca, Agrigento, Sicily, Italy
