Do you have Sicilian Roots? Travel in Sicily with an expert

I had hoped to write my own story about Ciro Grillo after a trip to Sicily, but he is offering services you might need now, so I shall post information on  www.sicilyroutes.com from a post Ciro did on face book.   

I was most interested in his ability to help fellow Italian Americans find their family villages.

If you are looking for your family roots in Sicily he may be able to help.*

  1. There are 6 of us traveling to Italy and Sicily in March and are looking to search our ancestry in Castelvetrano and Sambucca. I have already been to castelvetrano and gotten some info. None of us have been to Sambucca. We will be there for most of two weeks. 2 of us have been to Italy and Sicily but the other 4 have not.
