Looking for "Dimino" family roots

Postby hillmed » 15 Jan 2009, 00:54

Dimino family immigrated from Italy to New York, USA in 1885. Ship: Gottardo, May 1885, manifest #80657 which sailed from Naples. Looking for Guiseppe, born in Italy 1853, wife Maria Peniciaro, born in Italy 1862, and son Francesco, born 1880 in Palmero.
Thank you.

Welcome to IG..
Can you be more specific in your request......are you looking for records here in the US or Italy? For Italian records you must know the exact town of origin....Palermo is both a Province and a town within the Province.

It is most likely CEFALA DIANA (zip=CAP) 90030, Province of Palermo Sicilia.

Go to www.paginebianche.it and put in Dimino i the first line and the Cefala Diana and click CERCA for any Dimino listed. =Peter=

Postscript: I looked it up and there are 3 Dimino but in other towns so instead of putting in Cefala Diana substitute that with PA for all towns and villages inthe province of palermo.=Peter=

I tried as you suggested and it appears to be a telephone directory. I am looking for a record source around 1885.
