The Migrant tour
The Migrant tour consists in the possibility to even meet your own unknown relatives in Sicily, those links in genealogic trees lost in time, due for instance, to immigration in the United States of America.
Based on historical research in the archives and other places, we can find several aspects of people's history about Ancestors from Sicily.
some of the aspects are:
1. visiting the place where your Sicilian ancestors were from
2. visiting the cemetery where to find tombs of relatives
3. visiting churches and council archives to consult documents connected to relatives
4. visiting living relatives connected to ancestors in own family
5. finding the houses and sites where relatives lived
6. tasting local gastronomy
7. additional aspects to plan in advance
“We are very grateful for all of your time and effort in researching and sharing information about our family's ancestors in the Trapani-Erice region. We learned so much about our grandparents that we never knew.
I hope your continued research finds out more about the Candela and Portoghese ancestors and family, as well as living relatives in the Trapani area. I know we will return to Trapani some day and we look forward to seeing all of you again and visiting with you, as well as with possible family relatives in the area”.

"Many thanks to Gianni Grillo for helping us to finally meet our Sicilian relatives in Trapani. He worked continuously and tirelessly for over 18 months to gather information that eventually led to a meeting with family that we never knew we had! Without his help it would not have been possible. He also guided us on several tours throughout western Sicily to places such as Selinunte, Belice valley, and the Florio winery in Alcamo, as well as making a rental car available for us to explore on our own. If you want to know western Sicily, look no further than Easy Trapani - they can do it all. Our family will be forever grateful to Gianni for helping us to connect to our Sicilian heritage."

you can see the Candela Family in the picture taken in Erice during the tour
members of Candela family came on purpose from California to Sicily a second time to finally meet them. in this video, we can see first moments when they met each other. When I started my researches, the Candela Family only knew that their grandfather was from Western Sicily and no connections they had with existing relatives. Due to the researches, I discovered that the grandfather had even 8 among brothers and sisters, therefore, they were able to connect with many relatives they were unaware about them
