Can we asasist you further since there is no immediate way to determine if any current Reitano listed in the www.numberway.com telephone directory have Lipari Island (Messina province, Sicily) as their place of origin. Those who arrived as immigrants since 1892 canbe viewed at the www.ellisisland.org website. Perhaps we can assit you further? =Peter=

Just hoping to find some Reitano with ties to Cortland, NY who might untangle my Reitano web. I have lots of names, some mentioned in a notebook owned by my grandmother, but have no way of knowing how they might be cousins - what is the link to my family...
Going to Lipari for a few days in March, so I may find some clues!
Thanks for the offer of assistance.

Not to overlook the obvious...go to www.nonsolocap.it and put in Lipari and click and bring up Lipari by zip code name,province and region. Click directly upon the Lipari name and an adminstrative page will come up and the Municipio address where the civil registration records BMD's are located can be found by scrolling down to that address. There is a tourist url www to the right. For e-mail to their office use statocivile@comunelipari.it

Further ther military records office is in Messina where you will be headed and their address is Archivio di Stato di Messina, Uffico Militare, Via 24 Maggio 291 #18, 98122, Messina. If you plan on requesting documents you might want to write to them and ask for military records so that they might have waiting for you and do the same for the BMD on Lipari.

Have a great trip! =Peter=
