Thanks, I'll check the site. My search will actually be centered around the Dipasquale and Giudice last names, which are my direct ancestors. Scillieri, Corallo, Lauretta, Lombardo and Stracquadano are last names I see in my family tree too, therefore I'll try to get info as I go. In addition, I want to link names with local facts and events, so that I can place them in the right context. For example, we have a large portrait/oil painting of the husband of Giuseppa Scillieri. I also have visited the local cemetery and I have seen their burials. There is a site that details lots of info on the village my family is from, Comiso. Santa Croce Camerina is just a few kilometers away and I am sure some families were started by marrying people from surrounding villages. The last names you mentioned do not sound from the Comiso area. I have been there practically every year for the harvest and have vivid memories of all the locales.
The internet is of some limited use in this kind of going back quest. I'll go back next summer and plan spending a couple of days getting as much documentation as possible from local sources.
Let's keep in touch.
