Sicilian Ancestor and Surname Registry This page, and those that are linked directly to it are, for some visitors, perhaps the most important and valuable on this site. Thanks to a fabulous new program, CCHelper (County Coordinator's Helper), an application written by Patty Lindsay for use by USGenWeb sites (I also manage the Erie County, PA USGenWeb Site), visitors are able to view a registry where ALL surnames and ALL queries are fully indexed! In addition, pages are generated, automatically, allowing such things as surname lists to be provided in "bite sized chunks." Without question, this will allow Sicilian researchers to seek and post their information with considerable ease!
