Where is my American family ?
My name is Cecile Di Stefano and I'm French. My great great grandfather Salvatore born in 1869 in Calatafimi ( Sicily) had a brother Filippo (born in 1876 in Calatafimi) who came in the USA in 1906. His wife joined him with their son Vincenzo( 1905-) one year later. She was called Antonina Vanvara. They probably settled in NY . Another brother may also have emigrated to the Usa ( maybe Vincenzo born in 1885)a few years later. They went on writing to their sicilian family until World War II.
All the first sons in the family were called either Salvatore or Vincenzo. My grand father Antonino was born in 1914 in Tunisia where some Filippo's brothers migrated. My father, Salvatore born in 1942, came back to Italy and then in France around the 60s'. Those who remained in Sicily or who went to Africa are dead. My father is the last one and he only had two daughters. That's why he would like to find other members of the family even if I am aware that there is a little chance to find them.
