My grandfather John Ciccolella had two brothers and two sisters, all four the children of Panfilo Antonio Ciccolella and Marghertia Ferrelli Ciccolella. John's brothers were Guiseppe (Joe) and Andrea (Andrew). His sisters were Carmela and Maria. Doing my research I have found a great deal on Joe Ciccolella and Carmela Ciccolella Cocco, however, very little is known about Andrea and Maria. I recently ran across this passenger list. Andrea Ciccolella left Pettorano sul Gizio, Italy landing in Halifax, Canada on the ship America on May 13, 1924 - at the tender age of 25. A laborer, he had $45 bucks on him, he was listed as married to - Nunziata, and was traveling with his friend Giuseppe Zuffa. He landed in Fort William, Canada. I am hopeful this will lead to more research opportunities.
