Surnames: Garofalo or Galofaro
I am researching the Galofaro/Garofalo family which came from Sicily to Brooklyn, NY around 1905 ,the father was Settimo Garofalo/Galofaro, his wife was Rosaria ( Rose) Surdi. The Garofalos would have been from the vicinity of Palermo/Trapani but I dont know what town for certain. Settimos wife . Rosaria Surdi was from Vita, Sicily , a small town south of Palermo . They had at least 5 daughters , Vita , Gaetana, Maria, Giuseppa, Antonia or Antonina, all born in Sicily.
Garofalo was also spelled Galofaro on many of the documents I have found . I can't find any census of this family in NY . they could have moved to another state.
