La famiglia di Forami

Postby jwiilliams » 25 Dec 2009, 07:14

Ciao e buon natale!

Does anyone know any Forami from Messina, Sicilia? My bisnonno was born there in 1888 in Roccalumera. I am trying to find relatives in Italia, but I have had no luck. I know that Francesco, my bisnonno's father was named Letterio Forami and I do not know where he was born.

Grazie, Giacomo

Dear J. Williams you can send a form letter to Roccalumera and request birth.marriage and death records or even military service records at Messina which we can provide you here forthwith:

www.angelfire.com/ok3/pearlsofwisdom/it ... tters.html

Go to www.tuttitalia.it/sicilia/28-roccalumera and send form letter(s) to the UFFICIO DI STATO CIVILE (Registry Office) found under MUNICIPIO. There is no charge

If you clickon the www for Roccalumera you can get some tourist information as well. =Peter=
