Palminteri in Menfi, Sicily

Postby pizzonia74 » 21 Feb 2011, 01:43

My great-grandfather was born in 1902 in Menfi, Agrigento, Sicily. In 1910, he moved to America with his family. His name was Lorenzo Angelo Palminteri. His father was Antonino Palminteri and his father was Saveiro Palminteri. I want to know more about the family. I have found that the first Palminteri to live in Menfi was Leonardo Palminteri, born 1659 in Menfi. He had a son, Calogero, born 1670 (this is provable, the mother is unknown but the record shows that Leonardo had a son named Calogero when he was 11). I want to learn more about both the surname, and the town, does anyone have any information? You can e-mail me at Thanks!

My Grandmother was a Palminteri from Menfi. Her family immigrated to Chicago in the early 1900's. I've traced back to my 4th grandfather, Francesco Palminteri, born about 1785. I would love to see any information that you have found.
