Wow! I am sure that there is a connection if one goes back far enough! I've been researching my family for the past few years, but have concentrated on other family lines more than the ancestors from Prizzi. However, I went to Prizzi last year and did some research (the people in the records office there are WONDERFUL -- so helpful!), but only had an afternoon. I did see the house my grandfather was born in, which was exciting! I am leaving today for another trip to Sicily and will stop at Prizzi again. I hope to do more research on the Cannariato/Falsone line soon.
I think I communicated with your relative several years ago, when I found her on another ancestry site. Is it Florence Cannariato? She mentioned she was writing a booklet on the family, but I never got it together to purchase a copy from her. I will also share with you any information I might find on the Cannariato/Falsone family.
So glad you wrote!
