Book Synopsis of “The Lost Branch”:
The story of my Sicily connection is fun to tell. I hope you enjoy learning a little bit about Sicily, and how our family in America reconnected with our relatives across the sea. There were two brothers that were separated at a young age because of the strict rules of immigration back in the early 1900’s. A hundred years later, a reunion of two families finally took place. There were sad times, happy adventures and special moments and memories that will last a lifetime.
Here is how the voting stacked up for our top 3 videos. Thank you to everyone that submitted a video to us this year.
