Angelo F. Coniglio is a first-generation Sicilian-American, youngest of nine children born to parents from Serradifalco (Serradifarcu), Provincia Caltanissetta, Sicilia.  After retiring from practicing and  teaching civil engineering, he began researching his ancestry.  That interest led him to volunteer as a librarian at a local Mormon FamilySearch Center, where he is responsible for managing over five hundred Mormon microfilms of Italian/Sicilian records, on permanent loan to the center.  He has written a book inspired by his research; a fictional account of the life of a foundling girl in 1800s Sicily, her 'carusu' (mine-boy) brother, and their struggling parents.  The book, The Lady of the Wheel, may be ordered at http://bit.ly/SicilianStory.  An interview with Coniglio by author Veronica Di Grigoli is on her blog at http://bit.ly/SicilianFoundlingsBlog  

See Coniglio's family website at http://bit.ly/FamigliaConiglio.  For examples of original Sicilian birth, baptism, marriage and death records in Italian and Latin, transcribed and translated, go to http://bit.ly/HeritagePath and follow the links.  Coniglio lectures on Sicilian/Italian genealogy.  To see a decription of his presentations, click below.
