you study the genealogy pages here at ustica.org, you will find that your 4th
great-grandparents through Giacomo and Rose are Giuseppe Bonnano and Anna Gumina.
They are my 3rd great-grandparents. That means that you and I are 4th cousins
once removed. It's not a wildly close relationship, but I am still very glad
to meet a new cousin.
Anna Barraco left Ustica in 1892 with my infant grandmother, but they settled
in San Jose, the largest usticese community in the US after New Orleans. Anna
was Giuseppe Bonnano and Anna Gumina's granddaughter.
Californian, but I live in suburban Boston, bringing Ustica culture to New England!
more in northern California.
