ááI found a way to search the Ellis Island web site for home towns, and I searched for Ustica. I found 153 usticesi and who passed through Ellis Island.
As expected, many of these people (42%) went to New Orleans or nearby towns, and another large group (30%) went to San Jose or San Francisco. But a surprising number (39 people, or 26%) went to Manhattan or Brooklyn. So I suppose there may s till be a healthy usticese community in Brooklyn.
Does anyone know any usticese from Brooklyn? Are YOU from Brooklyn? Members of the California usticese community is just beginning to find one another, so next I suppose we should be looking for our kin in Brooklyn?
