Re: Anzalone Relatives & Sicilian Heritage Information
I am the son of John Anzalone, Frank Mike Cecil and Ester were my uncles and aunt.Your great grandmother was Josephine Sgro. Salvatore Came to the U.S. in 1912. But because of WWI did not return to Enna,Sicily (formally known as Castrogiovanni) until 1920.
Grand mom got pregnant with Cecil and that delayed their return to the USA until May 9,1921 on the Steam Ship Patria
Your Grandmother was 9 years old at that time.They went to Coalwood, WVA.The family left Coalwood to move to Baltimore in 1930 My father then went to dental school at the University of Maryland.
I was in Sicily for a week this summer this summer we drove by Enna, which is on top of a very high mountain. The tour that we were on could not go up there.The whole of Sicily is a very beautiful place.I hope to return the some day to explore more.If you have any questions please E-mail me.I guess that we are 2nd cousins.It was good to share this with some of the family.I have the ships manifest and a picture of the ship that I got from Ellis Island.I would be glad to share this with you at any time.Keep me posted on what you come up with
