My Grandmother's name was Rosalia Nasca (maiden name). She married Guiseppe Pettineo. She came over to the US in 1909. However, ship records, she had the name of Marcellina Guigna. I found my father's birth certificate, and mother's name was Marcellina Guigna. Can't figure this out. I heard that she was either adopted or went from family to family. My cousin told me she worked for some rich people as a cook at one time. My Grandfather was from Mistretta, Messina, Sicily. I guess my Grandmother was from the same area.
Anyone out there with some idea?
