Molinari's from Palermo

Postby rgehrkin » 18 Nov 2010, 00:31

My great grandfather was Giovanni Molinari (1878-1970) from Palermo. He married Rosaria DiGiovanni (1887-1973). They had 7 children: Antoinette, Paul, Mary, Frieda, Rosario, Frank and Ignazio. Does anyone know them?

Wow, thank you so much! Do you know how I could find the parents of Giovanni Molinari? I wrote to Palermo (Comune di Palermo) to try to get records, but they said that they had no record of him. I dont really know where to go from here.

In response to Boozy.bird: they settled in Brooklyn and stayed mostly in that area. Although as the children got older they moved around a little (my grandfather, Frank, moved to Long Island in the 50's and then to Florida in the 90's).
