2023: Please visit my new Petralia Sottana site!

Petralia Sottana is a small town in the Madonie Mountains in northern Sicily. The town's population has ranged between 4,000 and 7,000  people over the past 150 years.  My father's father was from  Petralia Sottana. I have found a family or surname connection with most everyone I have met  whose ancestors are from this town.  Those of us with roots there must  ultimately be cousins.

This website gives basic information about Petralia Sottana and some of  the surrounding towns in the Madonie region of the  Palermo province.

How do I find my family???
