Hi Jeanne,

I found a marriage record of Leonardo LoFrisco and Giuseppa Friscia among the Sciacca marriage records on If this is the right couple, it appears as though you have the correct surname for Giuseppa. If you would like to take a look at this record, "search" under Continental Europe, then Italy, Agrigento, Sciacca. It is record #107, dated November 17, 1894, among the Matrimonio records for the period 1864 - 1894. The page number is 3025. Next I would look for the birth records of their children that were born in Sciacca to confirm the surname of the mother. It looks to me that the parents of Leonardo on the marriage record are "fu Francesco" (deceased at the time of this record) and Giuseppa Cantone? (not sure of this surname; but other records could confirm - such as the pubblicazioni). Let me know if you have any questions.
