"My" Siragusas

Classification: Query
Surnames: Tantillo, Traina, Siragusa, Fiorra
I'll throw my hat in the Siragusa ring. My grandmother Maria Traina traveled to NY in 1907 on the Sannio from Palermo. Listed just above her on the ship manifest are five Siragusa children: Giuseppe, Giuseppina, Vincenzo, Rosario and one whose name I cannot read. Above them is the name (and presumed motherof the children) Antonina Fiorra. She also lists herself as "wife of Giuseppe Siragusa", if I am reading it correctly; the record is not in such great shape. I know these people are related to me since my maternal grandmother is Felicia Siragusa, and all of those Trainas and Siragusas report a similar address on Elizabeth Street in Brooklyn where my grandfather, Francesco Tantillo lived with his wife, my grandmother, Maria Traina. Any of these people ring a bell with anyone here? I would really like to further explore the Siragusa connection. Best to reach me at
