Hello, Not sure if any of you look at this site anymore but I came across it today. My great grandfather on my dads side is from Palermo. His name is Frank Virga and had a brother named John Virga. When they came to AMerica John changed Virga to Verga. I live near Buffalo, NY and most of Johns relatives are in Erie, Pa. My oldest brother did meet some of Johns decendants that are in Erie. I dont know if this is any help to anyone but I know that my father has a VIrga geneology somewhere. Hopefully I can get my hands on it soon and see if there are any connections.
