Hi John, Licciardi of Ustica. Since Ustica was uninhabited before 1760, most of the families of Ustica came from the nearby islands, Lipari, in particular. Your best bet to know what siland your family was from is to do some local genealogical research. try and find Filipo's death, marriage or naturalization record. Hopefully one of those will list his place of birth and you can focus your ssearch there.
