The Italian side
On the Italian side are the core families:
The Milone family, Sorrentino family and Pennisi families emigrated from Italy between 1893 and 1920. They settled in the Township of Hempstead, Nassau County, Long Island, New York in the neighboring towns of Rockville Centre, Baldwin, Oceanside and Freeport. These three families intermarried, therefore, some names overlap on the trees.
There are 7 Sorrentino family trees, one for each of Raffaele´s sons.

Facts about some people
Sarah-Jane Donlon (Donlan) was born in Manchester, England. She is found at the Swinton Industrial School in Manchester, England in 1871. She may have had a brother, James Donlon, at the same school. Were they orphans? Why?
Her husband Patrick Halliday (Holladay, Holiday, and Holliday) was born Ireland. He immigrated in 1881. I have yet to find his ship's manifest. I first find him in New York City at 226 East 75th Street, Manhattan, in the 1900 US census.
Elizabeth Hetherton (born 1859) is a mystery. I have only found one reference to her maiden name. She married Thomas Doran, who was a letter carrier. They also lived in Manhattan, NY.
