I'm amazed that someone has finally responded! I am trying to locate information about my husband's family. His paternal grandfather was Giuseppe Ganci (Gangi). His paternal grandmother was Concetta Bordonaro. They were from Priolo Gargallo. I have managed to locate a cousin in Priolo and have been in contact through his granddaughter. His father, Santo Ganci, was too young or frail to make the ocean crossing; so he lived out his live in Sicily. He has very little information about the family members who immigrated to Connecticut.

I have been unable to locate death certificates or grave sites for either of the grandparents. We know that my husband's father started paying for a grave for Concetta B. in Rocky Hill, CT, but he never finished the payments, and neither she nor her husband are interred there. We think they may have returned to Sicily in their old age, and passed there. If there is any information you have about either of them, it would be greatly appreciated. I will certainly share anything that might be of help to you, also. Thanks for responding. Kris
