hi, I live in France. my father is giuseppe meli. my grandmother is elina scarlata, my grandfather is giuseppe meli, they was born in Sicily. They left scily for France during the second war. I know that members of my family live in the US (it appears Chicago), and i believe that they had to change their name(MELI) for MELLI with 2 “L” (during the war). They founded MELLI's chocolate , and a studio of photography.
