It is possible my husnand's cousin made a faux pas. she doesn't speak the language and enlisted the help of the parish priest to contact a member of the family. A family story tells of three brothers who agreed the one remaining in Sicily would hold title to a family grove. Just one of the family legends I was told by my husband's Aunt Lucia Pule nee Badami. My husband's youngest brother has taken up the torch and has done extensive research on the ellisisland.com website. That is where he found his grandfather's true first name as well as photos. He also does research with the LDS files as he is a member of that church. I took a back seat some years ago after 30 years, I gave my brother-in-law my data and years of notes. Thanks for the response.
