My Randazzo relatives came from the town of Giardinello Sicily.
I have started a list of people who immigrated from Giardinello as found on the Ellis Island web site. I hope this will be of a help to someone looking for a relative. This project is a work in progress. Please help by informing me of any errors, or missing information, or by sending any photo's of family. I have another Family Tree web site at TribalPages (follow the link below).
