Carmiciano - From Messina, Sicily

Postby carmigiano » 26 Apr 2010, 20:04

I am trying to locate anything about my family from Messina. My great grandfather was Santo Carmiciano, born 1886 and married Benedetta Brancatelli. When he came to America our name was accidentally changed to Carmigiano. I know he had a few brothers, but that is all I know. Anyone with any onfo please, please let me know. Thanks!!

Santo is listed in the Social Security Death Index. Since he has a SS#, you can send away for his SS# application (for a fee). It will have the names of his parents, and the place of his birth.

Link to the application (online or by mail)

Some options...

You can view the microfilms available from the LDS at your nearest Mormon Family History Center. They have films for Messina civil registrations from 1866-1910. Use this link, scroll down and enter your zip to find the nearest FHC.

http://www.familysearch.org/eng/default.asp

You can also write directly to Italy for the records if you know the comune/town in which your ancestors were born. The Social Security Application should give you the precise town, and the names of parents.

When you are ready to write to Italy for records, this link is a great resource providing a form letter in Italian.
