Searching for further information on the Badalamenti & Mannino families from Cinisi. My grandmother, Fara Badalamenti, arrived in New York on 9 April 1913 and disembarked from the Taormina. Along with her were her parents, Antonio Badalamenti and Maria Antonina Mannino as well as her siblings, Carolina, Gesualda, Salvatore & Vito. They settled in Manhattan in the East 80's, and several years later moved to Brooklyn. All the siblings except Gesualda married and remained in the NY area. Gesualda married another Badalamenti, Angelo (who spelled the name without an ''I'' at the end) and moved to Detroit. I'm aware that there are many Mannino family members here in the New Orleans area, but have not had contact with them in my generation. My grandmother, Fara, was known as Fay, and married my grandfather, Joseph Louis Frangipane, who was from Palermo originally.
