  of 64

Hi my name is Louise and my maiden name is Ricca. My great grandfather's name was Paolo Ricca and his wife my great grandmother's maiden name was Rosa Lombardo Ricca. They had three boys: Guiseppe, Dominic and Ignazio(Harry)and Paolo (my great grandfather had a daughter from a previous marriage) Elizabeth. They came from the Santa Margherita, Sambuce area of Sicily. They came into Ellis Island at the turn of the century around the 1902-1904 or so. Guiseppe and Dominic were born in Italy, Harry (my granfather) was born in Hoboken NJ where they settled at first. They then moved to Brooklyn, NY. I live in NY now, Long Island. If this sounds familiar please write. Some other names to ponder, family settled in California also, Elizabeth, Alessio, Anthony. Please E'Mail back Thanks
