Sicilian Records

Postby updijp2 » 13 Dec 2008, 22:50

I am looking for a good source of Italian, specifically Sicilian, records. I am trying to find information on my great grandfather John (possibly Giovanni) LaRosa who lived in Palermo and immigrated to the U.S. in 1912. Any info or help would be much appreciated. Thanks!
