Im am looking for the marriage records for Charles Vitanza

Postby dnnisgomez » 07 Aug 2009, 20:35

Hello I am new and need help I am stuck :(

My Great Grandfather is named Charles Vitanza born 1883 in S. Salvatore di fitalia.

He was married twice:

Henrietta Vitanza married until death

Julia St. John divorced unknown?????

I want to find out about Julia and Charles's info... Mom maiden and father name. Naturalization number and info.

Can anyone obtain that info from any sights?? I have a limited income and cant afford to send for these things.
I also want info from Italy but I can not read Italian. I emailed the commune but got no response. I would appreciate any help.

Sincerely
Dennis Gomez

Thank you so much!!!!!

I would have never found this info!

I appreciate your hard work and time!!! The misspelling of Vitanza to Bitanza is because he had a thick accent. I would never of thought to look for that. I really really appreciate your help!!! I will countiune my search for Julia Vitanza (St. John) info. This will help me out so much!!

Sincerely
Dennis Gomez
