A New Blog.

I am in the process of removing posts from this blog to a new one which will concentrate on general history of the islands, photographs of the period of island immigration, period maps, antique prints of the islands, etc.
These items which do not have specific connections to the families we are talking about will be found at:

Other family blogs appear at:

Just a reminder to type in a search
 for what you want to see if you do
 not want to scroll through all of this.

about your comments.

Thank you so much for commenting on my blogs.  It really does help.  I am afraid that I just do not think to check on the blog comments very often, and if you do not get a response, it is just because I am absent minded!
 I continue to pick up images of the islands and whatever info I can glean from books and the internet.  The images are increasingly difficult for me to purchase, as I am on a fixed income.  However, I get all that I can afford in hopes that someday there will be a museum venue that I can donate them to.  If not on the Eolians(Aeolians) specifically, then at least to a general Italian immigrant museum.
 I would donate all to the museum in Malfa on Salina, but I am afraid that there would be a limited audience.  Again, I call to anyone who is interested to start a group related perhaps to the Filicudi Associates or a similar organization to celebrate the islands' contributions to immigration in the US.
