The Cassalia-family

has started to spread out on all the United States. Beginning from the eastern coast they have reached Florida and Texas, even California. But three or four generations after the first immigration is still visible where they started from: from Syracuse NY and Philadelphia PA.

My reconstruction starts with the registers from Ellis Island (see table), the old registration station of New York.

C'erano dei Cassalia che andavano nei Stati Uniti. Al inizio per motivi di lavoro, ma, poi, rimanerci per sempre.

Qui offro un elencolo dei parenti lontani nel vero senso della parola.

La famiglia Cassalia ha comminciato a difondersi nei Stati Uniti. Commonciando alla costa del est ha raggiunto Florida, Texas e California. Ma, due o tre generazioni doppo la prima imigrazione si vede ancora dove andavoni i primi.: A Syracuse ed a Philadelphia.
