Hello to all Gallettas. I live in Sydney Australia. My grandfather came to Australia in about 1920 from the island of Stromboli. I would love to hear from other Gallettas in the world. There are so many more than I imagined
All the Best

My grandfather was Giovanni Galletta, came to USA in early 1900's, married Annunizata Scarlotta (sp???). I know for sure that my grandmother was born in Reggio Calabria and I believe my grandfather was either born there or somewhere in Sicily. Both have been deceased for quite a long time. My grandfather, Giovanni, came to America before my grandmother did, he was a dock worker and had very close ties to the community in NYC, which was called Little Italy. They had 9 children including my mom. The oldest was my uncle Dominico who was born in Itlay and came to America with my grandmother when he was 2 years old. The rest of my mom's siblings were born in NYC. My grandfather passed away around 1953-1954 and my grandmother passed away in 1973. I would love to find out more about our family and to find out if I have any other relatives.
