Re: I need help

Hello:
My grandfather's name was Ed Cipriani. I was told he was with the consulate service in Scotland. He married my grandmother who was from Scotland, her name was Mary McCall Steele. Does anyone have any information about Ed Cipriani and how do I go about getting more info. They were married in the early 1920's I think in Scotland. My grandmother told me that he was in the Carribean where he contracted an illness that weakened his heart and he passed from a heart attack in his 50's long before I was born.

Thank you very much.

You migtht also wish trial subscription (free for few days) at www.go,.footnote.com for 206 references to Edward Cipriani. There are no references to him in Mormon ancestor search. =Peter=

Peter, the site URL www.go,.footnote.com is broken.

Apparently the website is experiencing some difficulty or changed the spelling since www.footnote.com seems to work and lists the 206 Edward Cipriani as well. =Peter=

just a little sidenote: the link you provided should not include the "www" it's simply

go.footnote.com :)

It seems like the same Edward Cipriani traveled back to London (possibly Wales or Scotland?) sometime in between 1894 and 1921 (same birth year):

Additionally, this may be unrelated but I thought it could possibly be an Uncle or relative - it is interesting that he was born in the West Indies, since apparently your Grandfather traveled there quite often..
