    Hello, nice project you have, thanks. I think my Sicilian grandparents may have lived in Little Italy in late 1800 or early-1900’s. Do you have a list of residents from Hull House or Taylor Street? Was there a similar community in Rockford, where my Uncle was born in 1905? My grandmother’s maiden name was Gannetta, and g’father’s Migliore (Americanized by INS to Melido in his earlier years) ?

    • List we have are members of the various clubs. Check them out to see if any of your grandparents exist on any of those lists. Not sure what Rockford may have comparable to our Taylor Street Archives website. But every “Little Italy” should have one.
