Hi Again Carol-
I don't think we have a connection- My Mom's maiden name was Sebastiana Iacono - However she was from a town called Pachino in Sicily - I just found her parent's Marriage certificate at the L.D.S. Libvrary on Saturday and her parents
names were Corrado Iacano & Corradino Assenza (her maiden name) Sorry I couldn't be of more help to you - If there is anything I can do for you please don't hesitate to ask- Best Regards and Luck in your searches - Rose

Rose, thanks, but think you are right, none of the names you mentioned sound familiar. I need to get back into researching, have been distracted by some family problems and really miss the genealogy, but appreciate your message!
Carol

Surnames: Iacono, Benenati, Malfetti
Carol, My wife's ggmother was a Margherite Iacono from Lipari, b. 1855. She married a member of the Italian army stationed in Lipari from Tuscany, Alessandro Malfetti, and in 1889 they came to New York. Her father was a Domenico Iacono, b. 1820 and mother Rosaria Benenati, b. 1822. If you have been lucky enough to go to Lipari, they lived on the Strada di Sant'Anna, near the hospital.
I have other postings under Iacono with more details.
Margherite's brother Vincenzo and sister Rosa, who married an Anthony Conte and lived in New Jersey also came to New York.

None of the names you mention seem to fit with what I do know, which is still not a lot about the family actually in Lipari, but I find it hard to believe on an island that small that the Iaconos are not all connected somewhere. My husbands grandmother was Angelina Ziino or Zino. His great grandparents were Salvatore Iacono and Rosa Biviano. All the names show up connected to Lipari, I just can't seem to completely link them. I have not been doing much lately to dig into the Italian family, due to some family problems with my Dad and his health, but starting to get back into digging. Need to sort out what I do know and press on. Thanks for the feedback. Let me know if any of this makes sense to you.

I have seen the Ziino name on the island. Other names we have include Marino, Lazzaro, Mazzitello, Piluso and Ristuccia.
Today I was at the New York City Municipal Archives and came across two 1914 Iacono deaths, both childre, Angelina, 16 months old, daughter of Salvatore, died 23 May 1914, cert. 16754 and Giovanna, 2 yrs old, daughter of Giovanni, b. Italy, d. 5 April 1914.

thanks for the info. Neither of the children seem to fit, at least at this point. None of the other surnames either. Will keep at the research though. One of these days I will find a piece of the puzzle! Thanks for your time.
