Da Chalmette (N.O.) Frank Mumphrey (Manfrè)

My father’s family, both Mumphrey and Licciardi, emigrated from Ustica to New Orleans. The Mumphrey’s came over during the early 1890’s and the Licciardi’s during the early 1900’s. The Mumphrey’s were farmers in Ustica and continued to farm in America. The Mumphrey Farm was in Meraux, Louisiana and eventually expanded into neighboring Chalmette. Most of St. Bernard Parish was farmland with a heavy concentration of Italian immigrants from Ustica. The Mumphrey Family was one of the first Italian Families to settle in St. Bernard Parish as were the Licciardi’s. Over the years we have stayed in contact with our family back in Ustica through visits, letters, and phone calls. I myself along with my two cousins, Anthony & Abraham Boackle, traveled to Ustica in May 2011. I’m planning another trip next year sometime between May and July. On Sunday, April 21st I had the pleasure of having the Bertucci’s and the Compagno’s as my guests for lunch at my family’s home in Slidell. We enjoyed great company and great food. I was really happy we were all able to get together. We also called our cousin Gianna Licciardi in Ustica and were able to talk to her for a while. I enjoyed our visit very much, it was a very good day. I look forward to visiting with our out of town guests again before they return to Ustica.

Western Usticesi: Reunion planned in California.


FRED LAURICE (3)

Pietro Bertucci and his wife, Pina of Ustica and Rome, are visiting the U.S. in April and May. Pietro edits the daily Ustica blog at www.usticasape.it. You may already be aware of a reunion planned for them in New Orleans (LaFreniere Park) on April 6. Pietro and his wife want to travel west to meet again with us “Western Usticesi”. They would like to meet as many of us as possible … so the question is, where could we meet that would bring out the greatest number of people to greet them. The choices of location are: the San Diego area, the Orange County area and the Santa Monica area. In Northern California our choices are the Bay Area (probably Mt. View) and the Sacramento area. We would like to get a feel for about how many could attend, depending on the location. We don’t yet have a definite date in Mid May. Our reunions in San Diego and Mt. View two years ago during Pietro’s last visit were both extremely successful and a lot of fun! This is a great opportunity to learn first hand of “what’s new on Ustica!”

Please indicate your feelings on the following:

San Diego Area

___ Would definitely attend

___ Might attend

___ Definitely could not attend

 

Orange County Area

___ Would definitely attend

___ Might attend

___ Definitely could not attend

 

Santa Monica Area

___ Would definitely attend

___ Might attend

___ Definitely could not attend

 

San Francisco Bay Area

___ Would definitely attend

___ Might attend

___ Definitely could not attend

Your response in the next day or two will help us greatly with our planning. We’ll pass the results along to Pietro and Pina so that they can plan on meeting the greatest number of people.

Ciao!

Fred Lauricella

Incontro Famiglie Americane che sono già state ad Ustica.


La torta del Re (King cake) a New Orleans è un dolce tradizionale che si mangia preferibilmente durante il periodo di Carnevale. È un anello di pane soffice (brioche) ricoperto di zucchero a velo di colore viola, verde e oro (i colori tradizionali di Carnevale), con coloranti alimentari.

A New Orleans è consuetudine che chi trova il bambinello nascosto all’interno della torta del Re deve provvedere a comprare la torta per l’incontro/party successivo.

Il Dr. Ranaldo A. Madere mostra il Bambinello che ha trovato nella fetta di torta data a lui.

New Orleans – Incontro/Party Famiglie con radici usticesi

COMMENTO:

Da Cosenza Salvio Foglia

Qualcuono dice, con garbo e ottimismo: a tavola non si invecchia !
Le foto potrebbero contraddire questo bell’adagio che piace, oh, come ci piace !
Il piacere è anche vedere tanta gente a tavola che chiacchiera, fa conoscenza, si studia e si “annusa”.
Questa riunione  è come la radice che ramifica sottoterra e genera tuttavia un solo stelo.
Questa pianta è il senso di appartenenza, l’essere di uno stesso luogo, ma in posti diversi…
e unirsi per donarci una bella morale: -non è importante dove sei o dove stai, se quei rametti abbarbicati nel profondo generano una unica linfa che si fa virgulto, che diventa albero solido e centenario che tiene assieme, con forza e tenacia, un piccolo mondo.
Voi, loro e tutti noi. bellissima emozione.
Un abbraccio, cari amici usticesi, in ogni dove…

Da Mandeville (Louisiana) Kevin Plaisance (Bertucci)

It truly was a pleasure meeting your and your wife today, and I will hopefully see you again soon at the meeting next Friday.

P.S.  – This was the first gathering for my family involving Bertucci relations from both Ustica and New Orleans, Louisiana. We met some new friends and shared some great stories. Thanks to Maria Bertucci Compagno for organizing this wonderful luncheon at her home.
