Augusta, Sicily Genealogy
of the DiMare, Marino, Amara, and Morello surnames

Welcome to my personal genealogy site for the DiMare, Marino, Amara and Morello surnames originating in Augusta, Sicily.  I started this project almost 3 years ago when I saw a post on that said, “We are all related”....but how?  I also had a desire to find any siblings of my great-grandfather Salvatore Marino who came to this country in the early 1900’s.  I discovered that the LDS genealogy library in Salt Lake City had microfilm records of all the births, deaths and marriages that occurred in Augusta from 1820-1929.  Although my original intent was to trace my own DiMare and Marino roots as far as I could, I began to record all the DiMare, Marino, Amara and Morello documents (found on the Genealogy page)....the surnames of my most immediate tree.  I began with birth records and saw family groups emerge (found on the Family Tree page).  In the Marino tree, there are 5 family lines without cross-connection....but most trace to Andrea Marino (1736-1799).  In the DiMare tree, nearly ALL of the families can be traced to one couple: Francesco DiMare (b. 1713) and Vincenza Lesina. 

Please enjoy using the data on the pages.  I would love to hear from you!
