Angelo F. Coniglio


I'm the youngest son of Sicilian immigrants who came to America one hundred years ago. After retiring from Civil Engineering practice and university teaching, I became experienced in researching Sicilian roots of American immigrants. That work inspired me to write a historical novella, The Lady of the Wheel, which tells the story of an abandoned child and her family in late-1800s Racalmuto, a Sicilian village.

I lecture in genealogy at no charge, and assist others of Sicilian/Italian ancestry who need help in developing their family tree. Contact me at
