Please Read the Following, because we may
just be looking for the same people.
* The Molinari Family is from somewhere in Italy near the Genova area. the Patriarch of the family is James Anthony Molinari. He was born about 1844.He Immigrated per the 1920 census in 1853 and became a naturilized citizen in 1867. He may have immigrated to the United States from the port city of Amentea, in Calabria. There is a name that appears on the Ellis Island Wall of Names panel #299 that may indicate his immigration. He settled in N.Y in the town of Far Rockaway.

@ The Boyland family is from England, and the Patriarch of the family is Joseph Boyland who married an American Mohawk Indian her name is currently debated since no one offically knows how it was spelled.
