Hi everyone, I'm french, I live in Toulouse, France, but my father is from Sicily, he was born in Palermo in 1945. Is name is Sergio. My granfather's name is Salvatore also born in Palermo, Sicily, but I know that the family name came from Castelbuono next to Cefalu in Siciliy. There is a castle there name Gugliuzza. In this castle you can't admire a portrait of il commandatore Guisseppe Antonio Gugliuzza Da Castelbuono. He was a navy officer for de king a two Sicily at the time around 1650 and something I don't quite remenber. I guess he's one of our great ancester. You might want to check it out one day if you go to Sicily, and get back to me, I would love to know more about the family's history.

The information I have seen (if correct) indicates Nuznia was born 12/14/1896 in Campofelice, Sicily which looking on a map is not far from Isnello. I would try to google Gugiuzza italian genealogy and go to the link.

Hi to all the Gugluizza's. I just happened to come across this. I see that my sister, Monica, and my cousins, Joseph and Martin, have already signed the guestbook, so you will already know my history. I too always was a definite stand out in every class I was ever in...NO ONE could ever promounce the name correctly. Actually, we have an ongoing friendly family feud about the spelling. Our father (Monica and I), Charles spelled it Gugluizza and his brother (John), my uncle and father of Joseph and Martin, spelled it Gugliuzza. If anyone has any input regarding the spelling, jump in and let us hear from you.

Hi to All the Gugliuzza's out there. Our grandfather immigrated to America the late 1800's. He was one of three brothers. His name was Mariano. He stayed in the NY metro area. He had two brothers who moved to Pennsylvania and Ohio respectfully. They changed their names to Grill and Williams. Both were in the wholesale candy business.
My father grew up in the Hudson county area of New Jersey. His name was John. My brothers name is Martin. We lived a childhood of thinking we were the only Gugliuzza's in the world, of course now I know differently. My grand father was from Cerda, outside of Palermo. Drop a\us a line, would love hearing from any one even if we are not "related". We belong to a very exclusive fraternity with our name.

Ciao to all the Gugliuzza..

My grandfather Salvatore also born in Isnello (1873 dec 1931) married Vento Maria ( 1879 – 1967).
On May 7, 1901 he arrived at Ellis Isl., and went on to join his brother Giuseppe, at 624 2nd Ave., Pittsburgh, PA.
On Apr 17, of the same year, his two brothers, Nicolò ( b. 1880 ), and Francesco(b. 1878) joined him.
In 1914 they returned to Isnello (because of my grand-ma’s health ), and lived in via Roma.
On Jan 25, 1921 my grand-pa returned to Buffalo N.Y. ( 438 Suvent St )- later he returned to Isnello.

My grand-pa other sons:
Gugliuzza Costantino ( b. Pittsburg PA- 1903 d. Cleveland 1969), married to Barbara (1905 – 1979).

All my parents are American citizens- then my father….
I have a brother Pietro b. 1944, Architect lives, in Vicenza, and a sister Maria Pia (b.1953), teacher, lives near Padova.
As for myself I was trained as an electrical engineer in 1966, but I have embarked on a different career – I owned a wine-shop, beer-bar and now I manage a Bed & Breakfast near Brescia !. All the details I can come up with ( there’s probably more at ) – who knows we might be related-

Best regards to all, Paolo

Hey Marc,
Thank you for providing all of The Gugliuzza Family with this cool website where we can communicate with each other. Its not everyday we can talk to other GUGLIUZZA people.
Spero che i Gugliuzza di Italia scrivano in Italiano cosi possiamo praticare la lingua.

The Italian side of my family is originally from Cefalu. The settled in Baltimore. My father's name was Vincent. My uncles were Bernard, Carlo, Joseph, and Rosario (Harry). I had a aunt named Sadie.
My parents divorced when I was still a baby. The divorce was bitter. I never saw my father again until I saw him in his casket. He died when I was 13. I am 64 now. I visit his grave in Parkwood Cemetary in Baltimore County, Maryland. My Uncle Joe was a teacher at Patterson High School. I was his student in woodshop. My mother in her anger and hurt changed my name to "Billy" because she could not bear to utter my father's name--Vincent--which is my name also. My Uncle Joe never acknowleged me as his nephew while I was in his class. We pretended not to know about each other. I met with members of my Gugliuzza family shortly after I began working as a teacher in Baltimore City. Although my mother was willing, the members of the Gugliuzza family declined to meet with my mother for some kind of reconciliation. Thus I remained estranged from my father's family. I have contact with them only at the grave sites. My mother died in 1995 at age 84. She is buried in Parkwood Cemetary also. Her second husband who I loved as my step-father is buried in another cemetary. I always realized that my mother never stopped loving my father. And she tried to be near him again in death. I love my father Vincent---I only know him from the stories my mother told me about him. Sadly, she never said his name when she told me those stories. I only heard my mother utter my father's name a few times. Once I became an adult, I assumed my birth name. That is how I came close to my father. To her dying day, my mother never called me by my father's name. I was always "Billy" to her. I have only three pictures of my father, but none with my mother and father together.

My grandfather, Domenico Gugliuzza, was from Cefalu. His father, Pasquale, married Sarah Liberto. As of 3 years ago, the Liberto's and Gugliuzza's lived within 1 mile of each other in Cefalu.

Anyone with additional info, please contact me.
Thank you in advance.

Hello everyone, welcome to the guestbook.

I was born in New York, but my father is from Isnello, Sicily. I'm curious about where other Gugliuzza's may have originated from. It seems most are from Sicily, but not necessary Isnello. I wonder if we are still related, and if so, how? There is a theory in my family that a few generations back, we have French ancestors. Has anyone else heard that?
