Surnames: Cassar, Caruana, Locano, Rapa, Sateranio, Cutajar
Have many families I am researching:
This is what has been collected so far...
Francesco Saverio LOCANO (d. July 17, 1908, Sliema) m. Giovanna Cutajar and had Alphonse (of Alfredo) b. 1843, Valetta d.? m. Maria Carmela CARUANA b. 1842, Sfax, Tunis d. Nov. 1931, Malta

Alphonse was a Mediatore <Maria Carmela was a Benestante> What do those words mean??
they had 7/8 children: Emma b?, Isolina b?,
Josephine b?, Emanuel b 1885 (died at age
8 mos., buried in Marsa), Joseph John Edward b 1887, Paola b 1892, Mary Madeline (or Magdalene, not sure which)b 1895, (John b 1891 - step son,had 3 sons: Edwin, Joseph & Hector.

This information is rather disjointed:
Antonio SATERANIO m. Francesco ?? and had daughter Emma CARUANA (this part doesn't make sense...why does she not have her father's surname?)

Emma married (2nd--maybe CARUANA was her first husbands name?) Antonia LOCANO this part doesn't make sense either...isn't Antonia a girls name? shouldn't it be Antonio? Antonia(o) LOCANO was born in Gharb Gozo, Malta.

Well, if you can make any sense out of this at all, I'd love to know it! Also if you have information regarding the other surnames mentioned: SATERANIO, CARUANA, or CUTAJAR.

Also, I am still looking for information regarding these folks too: Francesco RAPA and Angela CASSAR.

Hello Robert,
I also have a Rapa ancestor born in Nadur.
My gr-grandfather was Paulo Michael Francis Rapa born September 24, 1878 in Nadur, Gozo, Malta the son of:
Francesco Saverio Rapa (b.September 25, 1842 Ghajnsielem, Malta d.November 13, 1925) and Angela Cassar (b.December 15, 1845 d.January 22, 1926).
How do my dates mesh with yours...perhaps they were related somehow? I cannot find Rapa's in Malta.
Paul immigrated to US in 1913 with new wife and in 1919 name was changed to Roper.
Hope to hear from you.

Hello, yes most of the Rapa children ended up in New York and then Michigan, though I have found one line in Maine...do you have information regarding this line?

Sure, I believe John Rapa is my Uncle and so is Joe Rapa. I also believe you are my cousin. My father is Frank or as you use to call him Uncle Frankie.

I could be wrong on this, but if your sister is Barbara, then I'm right.

I cannot tell from the information you have provided whether we are cousins or not. I do not have an Uncle Frankie, nor a sister named Barbara, but we could still be related.

Can you tell me who John Joseph Rapa's father was? or perhaps one or two of his siblings so that I can figure out just where he fits in my line? Perhaps a date of birth might help as well?

I have 4 John Rapa's in my family tree...first born about 1883, another 1900, another October 1922 (in NY - married Muriel and had 6 children) and the last about 1943.

Please help by providing a bit more information. Thanks so much!
