My Diana's are also from Sicily, and I had the pleasure of visiting there May 2007. I don't have much, but am willing to share whatever I have.

I'm not sure where Raffadali is...but I'll look it up. None of the other names sound familiar, but I know so little about the family. I'll keep in touch.

Sarah,

My grandfather, Gaetano Diana, came from Partana, Trapani, Sicily. He was a shoemaker, and so was his whole family. He came through Ellis Island in 1913, so did his brothers (Guiseppe and Giacomo), and his sister Rosa. Their father's name was Salvatore Diana and he was married to Vita Stassi. They came to the US for a while, but returned to Sicily. Salvatore's father was Guiseppe - married to Rosa Pantano. Does any of these sound familiar?

I'm looking for Antonio Diana married to Anna Maria Pertosa (father of Veneranda and Nunzia) concentrating my searches around Foggia but interesting to see it's a big Sicilian name too it seems.

Hello,

Your name is Kerry Diana as well? That is totally wild, I have never run into anyone with my name. Do you live in Ohio? There is a Kerry Diana in Ohio that comes up when I Google myself.

My grandfather's family is from Sicily. Do you know the region yours is from? We are from Partanna, Trapani, Sicily. Try the Ellis Island website for possible ship manifests. That his where I got most of my information.

Let me know if you find a link.

Kerry
