Looking for the family of Giacomo Ognibene. He came to the USA early 1900's. He has 2 sisters not sure if they are still alive.
From Palermo,Sicily. Musso maybe related.
Relatives visited us in Cherry Hill,New Jersey in the 1980's.

I recently read your msg. My grandparents, Salvatore Matilda (Rizzo) Ognibene came to the US from near Palermo..a small village ValleLongo Valle Dolmo in Sicily. They settled in Buffalo, NY, and then to a farming community near Bflo, North Collins, NY, which is where I grew up, now in NJ. My great grandfather's name was JosephOgnibene, and he also came to the US in the earlly 1900's. Joseph Matilda O had 9 children: Josephine, Cosima,Rose, Mary, Joseph, Charles, Dominic,Loretto (my father), and Vincent. Ciao~ Jerry O.

My greatgrandmother had a sister named Sara Obnibene, they settled in Buffao and were from Vallelonga (vallelunga). Her maiden name was Mistretta, she married a Gandolf Asciutto. Wonder if they were sisters.

I was hapy to receive your msg. My grandmother's name was Matilda Rizzo, married to Salvatore O. She had 2 sisters, Jennie Rizzo Frances Rizzo. They originally settled in Bflo NY in the early 1900's, then moved to buy farms and settled south of Bflo, in North Collins, NY
St Anthony's Church in Bflo was the main church in Bflo's west side, for Italian immigrants. I plan to contact them for records such as baptisms, etc. It may be a good source to try. Good Luck, and keep in touch if you learn anything new. J Ognibene

My grandfather's mother was Angela Romano. Angela was born in Italy in 1879 and came to New York or New Jersey when she was 13 years old: apx.1892.
Angela's mother was Rose Musso, according to a 1920's census list. THey lived at 86 Semel Avenue Garfield, NJ.
Angela Romano married Pietro Benigno and they had my grandfather Charles Benigno, in New York, Brooklyn, in 1903.
My mother Alice Benigno, remembers them talking about a Musso, presumably Rose. Can this Rose Musso be a realation somehow? Does this sound familiar to anyone?
Thank you,
Robin Turizo

Sorry, but the names given do not seem to be related to my Ognibene family, at least, as far as I know. Let me know if you learn of any great resources. You might contact the Church, St Anthony of Padua, in Bflo. Was a church many italian imigrants belonged to. They may have family records. G. Ognibene
