My grandmother's maiden name was also Cambria. She came here in 1890 with her brother and 8 year old nephew.Her sister and her mother (Cicciari) also came here but I cannot find her mother on any ship manifests - they probably mispelled the name badly on the ships manifest. My research was never able to find any other members of the family in Barcellona. I hope to resume research some day but it is tedious looking through the Italian records. I too had no clue when I started my research anything about her - not even where she was from. There were many Cambria's from that town and many of the first names are the same. Typical of the way the Italians named their children - after the parents and grandparents. My Italian heritage was always denied when I was growing up and we were not told anything about the past. I started my research after my parents passed away so I had no one to talk to about it. What was your grandmother's first name?
