Buon Giorno Tutti.
Thanks so much for replying Mike. It was good to hear from another Orlando. I get this feeling that the Orlandos are a mighty BIG family in Sicily. IT seems from everything I read that they originated from the Roland family in France, but my question now becomes in what century did they migrate to Sicily. On a more personal note, my grandfather, Francesco came to America sometime around l906-1908 when he was 17 via Ellis Island also, but settled on the lower east side in New York City. I know he was an artist by career and studied at the Cooper Union Art School in New York. Two other questions. Have you or has anybody else here been to Sicily or live in Sicily? I am hoping to go there next March with my cousin, whose father was Michael Orlando, the only son of our grandfather, Francesco, who had three other girls. I am wondering how one goes about finding family over there.

Have a beautiful day. Marianne aka MarieAnne aka Marieoocha.
