We can help more if you give us some more specifics. For example, when were these people born?

The town of Agira has microfilms available for as late as the early 1900's.
So depending on the year they were born you may be able to get information from the films.

To look up films available go to www.familysearch.org
Go to LIBRARY then LIBRARY CATALOG select PLACE SEARCH
Enter AGIRA, part of ITALY

Click on the town and type of records you are interested in. Then click on VIEW FILM NOTES in the top right corner.

It will lists all the films you can order at any family history center. (They have them all over the world). To find your Family history center near you go to the same site as above, LIBRARY, then FAMILY HISTORY CENTER.

Hello!! yes, that is what I found.Really I'm in trouble because my grandfather's name was Fortunato Scilipoti.Yesterday I send a fax to the comune of Agira an d Castroreale looking for a document where the matrimony of them was .On ly I know that they emigrated to Argentina together(Fortunato, Giacinta and Giuseppe) in 1910 aprox.From Agira I received last month the stratto with dates of my grandfather Giuseppe, born on 24/12/1909 in Agira in I suppose a house,on Siracose street.Ihave nobody that could help me, because all are dead including my father.But with the info taht I found,I get so cold when I read the last name of Buzza instead Scilipoti, is misterious for me.Here in Argentina there's no documents of their parent(Fortunato and Giacinta)all was lost with the time I suppose.but I colud see my grandfather passport with his dates of born and the place.In the ship manifiest say that Giacinta, Agata and Gaetano were from Agira, and I colud find too the registers of Fortunato Scilipoti who,the manifiest showns us, that he went to EE.UU in 1913, and alone.I don't understand nothing.So I decided to get the comune of Castroreale, because the manifiest says that he was borned in Castroreale.Maybe they weren't married?and she was married with another man??Because all the history that I ever listen cames from them directly.Natalia
