I am researching the following family surnames: Giamona, Giambona, Ferranti, Aiello, Russo, Cardinalli, Cardinale, Bruno,Enea, Lo Bello, Vitali, Scalici, Lucido. My ancestors came from Isola delle Femmine, Sicily (a small commune about 15 km from Palermo) and the neighboring commune of Capaci. Both are located in Palermo Province. Those that immigrated to the U.S. did so beginning in the 1890s. They originally settled primarily in Black Diamond, CA (present day Pittsburg), and to a lesser extent in Martinez, CA. Beginning about 1915 a significant number moved to Monterey,California to participate in California's new sardine industry. They were primarily involved in the commercial fishing industry in both Sicily and the U.S. If your roots go back to Isola delle Femmine or Capaci, please contact me or visit the Isola delle Femmine Connection web site.
