Going through microfilmed records for your town is the best way to find records for all of the family members you are searching

Thank you for that information. I sometimes see the same people (based on matches on dates and related names such as spouses and children) on different documents with two surnames - Puma and Di Puma. Di in Italian means 'of'. I'm thinking that the difference comes in how the mid-wife who reports the birth to the authorities remembers the name. Not sure if that is the right reason. POssibly, also, there are differences between church and town reporting or surnames, for example church is in Latin; town is in italian) that explain this?

Good afternoon.

I am conducting research on my wife's Puma family from Rocalmuto, Agrigento.

Leonardo Puma (b. 1863) was married to Catarina Butice.

Leonardo's son Angelo Puma was married to Maria Craparo.

Angelo Puma's son Leonardo Puma (b. 1862) was married to Giuseppa Lo Bue.

Any assistance is appreciated.

Thank you.

Marty thanks for your assistance.

I think that the Racamuto civil database is only available from the "world-wide" edition of Ancestry.com. This cost about $400.00 annually. This is more than what I want to invest at this time.

Plan B would be to order the Racalmuto civil records on microfilm from the LDS Family History library. This would be much cheaper.

Thanks again.
