Giovanni Lardizzone -approx 1856-1915 from Militello,Catania

Postby Castrogovianni » 18 Jul 2009, 16:18

Hello My Freinds;

I am seeking any information on my Great Great Grandfather Giovanni Lardizzone or his daughter Giovanna.

His Birth and death dates are approximately 1856-1915. His residence was in Militello in Val di Catania, Sicilia, Italy.

It is believed that Giovanni Lardizzone did not leave Italy.

He is the Father of Giovanna Lardizzone also born there in Militello in approx. 1881 and died in 1919 in New York.

Giovanna Lardizzone married Francesco Castrogiovanni in Militello in approx 1908.

I very much appreciate any information or advice you could provide. Thank you very much!

Please reply or email me at:
michael.castrogovianni@setoyota.com

Thanks
Michael Angelo Castrogovianni
