Help With Vellone Family History

Postby mommy23monkeys » 02 Mar 2011, 18:00

hi! I'm so happy I found this site. Maybe you can help me. I'm working on tracing my ancestry back.

My great-grandfather was Amelio Vellone who was born sometime in 1906. He immigrated to America through Boston in 1921. He was 14yo. Sometime as an adult, he was deported back to Italy, somewhere in Sicily. I have no idea what ever happened to him but we think he died sometime in the 1980's.

Is there anyway to find out about him? I don't speak Italian so I don't know how to search. Any help would be appreciated!

if you can find the petition, you will know the exact birthdate of Emilio;
and the birthdate is necessary for to write in Roccalumera asking death certificate... it is a bit difficult obtain it, because it are data under privacy law, but you are a direct descendent and the request, if you make it very well, it are no problem to obtain it... you know parent's name, birthplace( Roccalumera) and just the birthdate lacking...
