Looking for information on my grandparents and locate any remaining family. My grandfather, Giuseppi (Joseph) Vento was born in Lercara Friddi, Sicily (1881) married Maria (Mary) Louisa Placa (Venice, Italy). Entered NY (Ellis Island) in 1920. (By way of Sao Paolo, Brazil.
There are 12 listings for vento in Lercara Friddi which may be of interest to you as possible family relations. Go to www.paginebianche.it and insert Vento in the first line and Lercara Friddi in the third and click CERCA. Can you specify what information you are seeking? If you wish to research the Vento and the Placa families then you can go to the Mormon church Family History Library and request microfilm for Lercara Friddi civil records which date back to 1820. Placa located in Venice City or perhaps the province of Venezia (Venice) can also be researched. Peter
