correction: daughter was Maria not Marie
more info: My Castiglia's are from Sciara, Sicily, Italy
Ellis Island records show Giovanna coming thru Dec. 30,1901 with the 5 children and it shows them going to meet her husband Antonino Castiglia in Oswego, NY.
My Grandmother was baptized in St John's Church which in now closed but St. Mary's has the records from St. John's.
I saw and took pictures of her baptism record in the original book, Gram got to see it also TOO COOL!
I think Ellis Island records show Antonino coming thru 3/23/1894. It shows him as 41 years old and his headstone says he was born in 1852 so the numbers are pretty close.
Again any help would be Great, I'd love for Gram to meet the family she never knew. Please think and move fast, she's approaching a century old, wouldn't you like to meet her?
