Ibella / Ibelli Vulture, Italy

Postby Jame827 » 10 Sep 2010, 00:24

I am in the process of finding out some history about my family. If anyone would be able to help in the process, I'd really appreciate it.

The surname in the US is Ibella but records lead me to believe it was Ibelli in Italy.

I also know that my Great Grandfather Giovanni Ibelli was from Vulture. I have pictures but no leads at the moment.

Please contact me if you can help.

Thank you

The only records I have are his military registration card. So both US and Italian records would be really nice to have! Are there usually any records from Italy available?

Since you'll need to know approx dates for ordering records in PA and Allegheny County, you may want to check with Mt Carmel Cemetery to see if they have burial records for your family:
