Edini - my grandfather

Postby angeloNC » 07 Feb 2010, 20:15

Hello, I just joined because I've hit a dead end when searching for information about my grandfather. I got as far as finding out he listed his home as Porto Empedolce. The other information I found was that he was born in Girgenti in 1891. I was wondering if you could provide any additional information. His name was Guiseppe Edini.

Hi and welcome to the forum,

Do you have his ship's manifests? I believe he made 2 trips.

Porto Empedocle is a town in the Province of Agrigento (Girgenti) Sicily.

Yes he did make 2 trips... once was his original trip to the US and the second trip was when he went back and (I am thinking) married my grandmother and returned to the states with her.

First trip was the Italia on January 1911

Second trip was the Regina D'Italia in 1919

What I am looking for would be his birth record and perhaps his parents names

Thanks for all your help...

If you don't have it, here you can see his birth date so the research of his birth act will be easier and you'll find his parents names and other details...
