I recently found out my great-grandparents came from Sicily. It is believed that they were ordered to leave the country. But I don't know why. The came through Ellis Island. I originally thought the came from Italy. My grandmothers name was Mary Jean Handy. Her original name was conchetta maria Laport. She was the oldest of 10 children. The youngest was cameil or camella. When she was 9 she went to work for Montgomery Wards making drapes. She retired from there when she was 65. She married a Milton Handy. They were married in July 1923 in Conn. They had 2 children Milton(junior) and Blanche. They moved to Florida in the 1940's or 1950's, where they both died. Her fathers name was John Laport or Laporta. If they sound familiar please contact me at:
