I am from Melbourne Australia trying to locate any distant Tomaselli family. My father's family originated from a small town called Agira in Sicily which is in the province of Enna. I am very interested to know more about my surname and if I can locate any Tomaselli family in America related to my Grandfather.
My father, Guglielmo Tomaselli, was born in Agira 1926. His father's name was Fillipo Tomaselli and mother's name was Rosa (maiden name was Russo). Fillipo died around 1935 or 1936 and so my father did not really know him that well. All my family know about Fillipo is he had 3 siblings: one half sister (Angela Amendolia) , one half brother (Vincenzo) and one sister (don't know her name).
Last time my Dad was over in Sicily, he managed to locate Angela's family, the Amendolia family, in Agira. Angela is no longer alive but he did meet her grandchild, Sara Amendolia .
So now I'd like to locate the 2nd sister's family. We know she married and moved to America but not exactly sure when.
Anyway I'd be very appreciative if any of the names I've mentioned above sounds familiar to anyone. Who knows... I could be your distant "Tomaselli" cousin. That said I would would like to get in contact! Thanks.
