How Do I....

Postby jackmess » 08 Apr 2009, 19:58

Where do I go (look/contact) for birth certificates for family from Mussomeli, Sicily and Marineo, Sicily ?
:roll:
How do I find out information on Francesco Chiquito Messina and whether or not he was a Baron?
:?
An ancestor left money for my grandmother that was never collected, out of curiosity – is there a way to see if a record of the pre-1954 will exists?
:P
Thanks,

Jack

There is no nobility appearing on a cursory check of Sicilian nobility inthe Messina surname nor Chiquita or any combination. This may require research on your part putting in varous titles in Google.com for the name and location. Knowing Italian language can indeed be helpful but there are people who regularly research in Sicily. Let me know if this might help. =Peter==
