To follow the trail back to Ustica, back to Lipari, back to Where? -- Where did the families living on Lipari come from?
The following is the basis for my question.My Bertucci surname is centered today in Rome & northern Italy [Tuscany, Lombardy.]The original Vincent Bertucci [shoemaker] in Ustica has no ancestor shown on the website.[so how did he get there?]
I'm guessing that many U stecesi families were from northern or middle Italy because of the blond hair & blue eyes [which I have read somewhere is from William the Conqueror's people. - I think this came from an article in the Reader's Digest about a northern Italian village which had a gene for low chlorestrol.]
