17638. Salvatore Macauta
I've always been told that there's a sort of logjam in my family tree, a clustering of Galluzzos, Bravos, Collettes and more. I know that one of the branches reaches out to the Macauta family.
Is this one of the twigs I should be grasping at? Salvatore, "Nato a Perzolo, Messina." I've always been told that my grandmother's family came from Messina, the first town across the Straits of Messina on Sicily. I actually passed through it by train while an exchange student in 1985. Is this my great-grandfather and his family? Since he "Morto a Hingham" in 1936, I never had the chance to meet him. Perhaps I can find an obituary?
Boy, would I like to know who I am.
