Joseph Margiotta

My great-grandfather, Joseph Margiotta, came to New Orleans from Sicily with a sibling, Sebastiano. These two Margiotta brothers married Alfano sisters (on one attempt at tracing the family tree the last name is said to be Giololana, but all the rest say Alfano): Sebastiano married Frances Alfano; Joseph married Antonina. Four Alfano siblings came to New Orleans: Guillermo, a blind male, Frances, Antonina. Antonina and Joseph ran a greengrocer's stand on Tchoupitoulas St. Guillermo was prosperous and owned properties in the District (Storyville). I have the decendents of the Joseph-Antonina union and am seeking information on their parentage. They are said to have come from either Busechina or Campoforito. I'm new to this stuff, but have been interested in my heritage for many years. Thanks so much.
