Francesco (Frank) Cali from Sicily

Francesco (Frank) Cali from Sicily

I have 2 photos of Frank Cali who was from Castledaccia, Italy in Sicily from when he was apparently a member of the army in Italy. He was the brother of my grandfather, Andrea (Andrew) Cali who was born in 1882 so I assume he would be somewhere close in age. I am not sure whether or not he stayed in the United States, but my grandfather came to the US to stay in 1907 and lived in Streator, IL. Anyone think they might have a connection, please write me at mvahldi334@aol.com. Thank you!

I read your message, and my great grandfather Francesco Cali was from Sicily. I'm not sure if there is a connection, but my family always talked about a picture of my great grandfather in his military uniform. He was born July 7, 1886, married October 24, 1907 to Bernardina Cardella. They came to the US around 1907.

Anna,
Here is a coincidence - my grandfather also came to the US in 1907 and settled in Illinois. Where did your grandfather live? I have 3 pictures of Frank in his uniform - I could send you one - would your recognize him? This Cali family was from Casteldaccia in Sicily which is about 15 miles from Palermo. Do you think we have a connection? You can write to me at my regular email address at mvahldi334@aol.com
Thanks!

Yes, our Frank Cali was killed during the World War I fight as a soldier, I believe. He was the brother of my grandfather, Andrew Cali. They were from Casteldaccia, Sicily, which is a small town about 15 miles from Palermo in Sicily. Do you have any idea of where they were from in Sicily? I have been there since my post and perhaps I could help you in your search.

My Frank Cali was alive in 1942, as I saw from World War registration cards, so it must not be the same. I am not quite sure what part of Italy my family is from. I am glad you found out info. about your family.
