You might want to have your friend check out the Termini Imerese
Database. Battaglia is a pretty common name in Termini Imerese as well

There are Battaglia's here in Minneapolis. Any of your relatives
possibly
in this area? Any hear of Cincotta surname from Lipari? I have a
friend
who has been looking for a long time and can't find connections.
Josephine
Cincotta. Let me know. They are cousins of the Battaglia family.
Grazie,
Shirley
