An opportunity for you to learn and to search for your relatives will be held Saturday, November 7, 2015 starting at 1:00 p.m. and ending at 4:00 p.m. called: TROVA I TUOI ANTENATI, (Find Your Ancestors) A Genealogy Event, held by the Culture Committee at the Italian Community Center, in collaboration with us and the Milwaukee County Genealogical Society. They will be bringing their computers to search in their databases for your family. We will be bringing our private database of 45,123 names and 14,052 families from the areas in or around Palermo, Sicily. If your family is from this area and if your surname is related to Alioto, Dentice, Balistreri, Busalacchi, Machi, Sanfilippo, Tarantino, or any other spelling of these and other related surnames, you do not want to miss this event. You might even meet a new cousin.
