There is a big family here and I would like more information. I know my maternal grandparents came here from Palermo Sicily, early 1900's at seperate times. Not sure when.
I also found out that Salvatore Battaglia had 2 brothers, Barney and Frank.
Barney had a son John. And Frank had 2 sons John and Vincent, or Vincenzo.
I really would like more info. before the 20th century on either side of this family tree. It seems it all starts here in America which is good. But Hungry for more info. Please help.
