surname Rinella

Postby catherinesampson » 13 Feb 2011, 21:39

I'm looking for my grandfather's parents. His name was Anthony Rinella. Born somewhere in Sicily, maybe Corleone (?) around 1892. He came to Canada first and then to Akron, Ohio around 1914.
Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you Marty. Unfortunately I have all this information. Rose Rinella was my mother. However, I've never been able to find out any more information on my grandfather, Anthony. Could be Antonio or Antonino.
Do you know if there was a real town called Corleon? Rumour in the family is that he was from Corleon.
Thanks!

Thanks both for the info. Unfortunately, I do not speak italian, so I'm not sure what the website says.
But at least I know there was a Corleane.

There is the following database on ancestry.com- I don't have a subscription, but perhaps your Antonio is in this database and someone else can upload those records for you.

All Border Crossings: From Canada to U.S., 1895-1956

There is both an Antonio Rinella and a Tony Rinella who come up in the search. Also there is a Caterina who comes up in the search as well. Were they already married when he entered the U.S from Canada?

If you click on the words La Citta` at left, then on the next screen, you can select Fotografie. There are photos of Corleone there which may be of interest to you.

Thank you. I do have a subscription to ancestry.com and I do have that information. I'm trying to go further back than that though. They were married when they came from Canada to Ohio. I think they may have married in Toronto.
Thanks again!
