Hi Anthony,
Saw your note re our Cannata Clan. My grandfather was Emmanuel Cannata born 1880- who had 7 brothers. His parents were John and Antonina. He was the only one who emigrated to US (the family disgrace, I'm told). He was married to Gracia Migliore born 1887 in Siracusa, Modica who also had a large family. He arrived here about 1920, settling in Vt. She arrived in 1926 with my father Vincenzo, and aunt Carmella. I've tried writing to both families, using very old addresses but both letters were returned. I've been totaly unable to contact anyone - We even went to Palermo on a recent trip but --nothing....Do you been more successful?

Gracia Cannata Matella
