Looking for information on Trapani Family

Postby tortoisekeeper » 28 Jun 2010, 20:02

My great great grandfather was Franceso Trapani and his wife was Michela Scalleta Trapani. I know of one daughter named Teresa Trapani. I know that they grew strawberries in Tangahopia Parish Louisiana in the early 1900's. Teresa married Salvador Piazza and lived in New Orleans Louisiana. I have found records on Teresa and her children but can not find anything else. I am a member of ancestry.com but have not been able to come up with anything on my great great grandparents. I know they came from Italy but not the town. Can anyone help me?

Thank you so much for the information. This is my family. I did not know if my great grandmother had any siblings. I am trying to figue out how to use the index you posted to search for others in my family. I think I have found the sister of my great grandfather and have been told they came from Termini. Any other information that anyone had would be greatly appricated.

If your ancestry is from Termini, you may find the following website helpful. It appears that you now have to pay an annual fee to access the records in this database.
