My mothers maiden name was Crescione changed from Criscione when my great-grandparents immigrated from Sicily. Our family is from Comiso, and my grandfather always told me and my cousins that we descended from a Sicilian royal family - I also know there is a Castle Criscione...I would love to know more

it´s not confirmed if there is really connection of modern Albania with the historical kingdom Albania in the Caucasus, but very interesting all to read.

Hi,

I had done more research on the Crisciones of Ragusa and Comiso. There was a small branch of the Crisciones that moved to Comiso. As a matter of fact, I believe that my family may have come from there as well. My GM told me that my Criscione family was not from Ragusa but from a smaller city next to Ragusa, which was Comiso. In fact, I can't find my relatives’ records in Ragusa after certain period of time, which supports my grandmother's story.

I have started to look through the Comiso records and found some Crisciones, some from the aristocratic line and some not. There are not many and I am still digging through the records.

The story of the aristocratic line is as follows. Some of the wealthier Crisciones married well. One branch married into the Occhipinti family which held the Baronage of Salamaro e Corallo from the early 14th century. During the Italian unification, Isidoro Criscione, whose mother was an Occhipinti, cut a deal and became the Baron of Corallo in 1872. It should be noted that earlier members of this line of the Crisciones are descendents of Filippo DiStefano who was the Baron of Cutulia and a descendent of a Borgia/DiStefano family line.

My GF was Carmelo-Emmanuele Criscione; his parents were Giovanni Crisicione and Rosaria Tidona. Giovanni’s parents were Stefano and Angela Leggio; Stefano’s parents were Carmelo and Giuseppa Tummino. Stefano's oldest brother was named Paolo, which according to Italian tradition should be the name of his GF. There was a Paolo Criscione that lived in Comiso and would fit the time period. My uncle also though that Paolo was the name of my one GGF but I am still proving it.
