My Grandfather and his 6-Brothers emigrated from Sciaca, Sicily aout that time. I know a lot about my Family History and have some old photo's of the 7-Brothers.

We may be distant relatives.

Hi Joseph,
Hope you're still out there. I am helping someone research Chiarello family, her gr grandparents were Luciano and Accursia Chiarello, he born abt. 1878 or 79; ship list indicated b.place was Sciacca. Could you tell me more about the 7 brothers? I'm having trouble finding Luciano on censuses and piecing together how they are all related.

Thanks,
Lisa

My Grandfather was your Grandfather Brother. He was Diego Chiarello. I think he was the 3rd or fourth born of the seeven brothers. I have a photo of all seven brothers from the early 20's.

They formed in the 1910's or 20's centry a lighterage & stevedore company named SEVEN BROTHERS. They all at one time lived in seven attached rows of houses in Brooklyn each house with a front porch. They made the seven porches into one long porch where they all ate every evening together w/their families. From this row of Houses w/some success they bought 'Solomons' Castle on the Bay of Jamica in Queens where they all lived w/their families until it burnt down via a painters oil cloth left on the roof in the 30's after living their just a few years. After it urnt down they allwent their separate way. On that same site, Rockawy HS was bulit a year or twwo after the fire. My grandfathe went on to from "american Stefedores' in Brooklyn an eventually had hius 4 sones run and trake over the company. Diego died in around 1962. Theere is a n obituary in the NY times the time hed died. If you want any more infopo contat me at josephchiarello@oponline.net

Chiarello is a big family name in Sciacca, Sicily. Lucky for us all, many of the Sciacca records were microfilmed by the LDS Family Library. You should contact your local Family History Library (if you're in Brooklyn, there's one in Carroll Gardens). For $15 you can order the microfilm of the birth/marriage/death records for Sciacca. The records are wonderfully clear and easy to navigate. There's an index at the end of each year.

I discovered my own connection to a Chiarello (Rosaria, b. 1840 to Rosa & Antonino (I think)) through these records.
