i am a descendant of Chiaramontes from the town of Santa Ninfa, Sicily. my ggg grandmother was Angela Chiaramonte born in 1830 to the parents Giovanni Chiaramonte (b.~1796) and Maria Anna Grimaldi (b.~1803).

Hi, Are you perhaps aware of Guiseppe Chiaramonte (born 1854) who married Guiseppa Modica (born 1859) both from Sicily. They lived in Louisiana and raised a family of 6. Thanks, Helen

I found your e-mail very interesting. My Grandparents on both sides came from Santa Ninfa. My Grandmother was Angela Chiaramonte and my Grandfather was Mariano Mistretta. They settled in Manchester, Conn. around 1900 or so. My other Grandparents surnames were Carraccia and Adragna.

Have you traveled to Santa Ninfa?

does your Cervellione family come from Santa Ninfa? if so, there may be a connection. it does not appear to be a very common name from this town.

i have a Mariano Cervellione (b. abt 1830 in Santa Ninfa) married to a Maria Chiaramonte in Santa Ninfa on 12 Feb 1850. Mariano's parents are listed as unknown on the marriage record. i have not yet looked for any children of this union but i could if you think we could connect. Maria Chiaramonte is my GGGG Aunt.

I know that my grandfather, Nicholas Cervellione is from Sicily. He moved to Rome with my grandmother, Marinia Delfini. I know a lot about my grandmother's side (Delfini) but not much about my grandfather's side. My grandfather died when my dad was 13. I will ask my father for some more information and see if we connect at all. I know that Cervellione is not common in the US but its pretty uncommon in Italy too, so I have heard.

Giuseppe Aiello lived 1879-1957 his parents were Giovanni Aiello and Marianna DiPrima .Giuseppe Aiello had 9 siblings including him there were 6 boys and 4 girls;Giuseppe Aiello married my grandmother Maria Grimaldi around 1910.

My great grandfather Giovanni Aiello married Marianna DiPrima who's parents were Saro DiPrima and Maria DiPrima;

Giovanni Aiello's parents were my great great grandfather Giuseppe Aiello and his wife my great great grandmother; Rosa Aiello who's maiden name I do not know nor dates or generations prior to that.
My frandfather Giuseppe Aiello's maternal ancestors were ,mother Marianna Di Prima who's parents were Saro DiPrima and Maria DiPrima. ...hence I would like to know of info prior to 1879 and relatives of the Grimaldi's, Cardelli's and Mazola's and DiPrima's all from apparently Santa Ninfa?
