since your know their dates of birth, and if you are sure they were born in, and married in Santa Caterina Villarmosa, then you can write directly to the comune to request birth and marriage documents.

Address:
Ufficio dello Stato Civile
Via Berlino
93018 Santa Caterina Villarmosa (CL)
ITALY

Wow, amazing and interesting. Now I know why my Aunt was named Bernadetta (Americanized version). How were you able to trace this information? I would like to seek their siblings as well.
Thank you so much for your time in this matter. I did attempt your website and will try it another time with a translator :)
Thanks again.
Sincerely yours,
ArleneTami

Off the boat story: I was told as a child and then some that we have relatives in Argentina, the story is told as they got off the boat and could not afford to get back on. Has anyone heard of this? or is it a tall tale?
Tx,

Arlene the story sounds distorted and contrived to satisfy something or somebody. When Immigrants go to an incoming receiving immigrant nation like Argentina there is work, menial or otherwise and in early turn of the century years fares were not exorbitant. I woujld consider this a tgale suffering the ravages of misinformation. =Peter=
