Messina, Renna in Caltavuturo

Postby kas65 » 05 Feb 2011, 19:43

Trying to trace Messina and Renna ancestry. I know that my great grandparents, Marie Renna and Alberti Messina came from Caltavuturo Sicily. Alberti, born Aug 1868 came to US on 4/22/1893. Marie, born 1870 came to the US in 1900 with their daughter Calogera. Marie had the following siblings: Gesualdo, Guiseppe, Rosario, and Rosina (or Rosalina), that I know of. Most of them settled in the Buffalo, Lockport NY area. I believe there are still some relatives in that area.

I am hoping to find out any information on living relatives, or other information on Maria and Alberti, i.e. marriage information, parents, etc.

If anyone out there can assist I would appreciate it.

Thank you.

Kim, my last name is Messina...and my great great grandfather was Rosario Messina in Sant'Antonio Catania, Sicily.....

He had a son named Paolo, born June 12, 1888 in Catania (my great grandfather).....

Rosario Messina married Antonia Battiato, not sure of year though as I haven't went back further than getting their names off my my great grandfathers italian birth certificate.......
