Santa Margherita di Belice vital records

Postby Melona75 » 08 Mar 2011, 15:22

I've been working on my Sicilian family tree for months. I've recently discovered a link to Santa Margherita di Belice. Our LoIacono family were in Santa Margherita before going to Contessa Entellina. I've been able to get some info through the LDS( site and have details from a Contessa site but I'm trying to trace back to pre-1817. Does anyone know of a personal collection of records older than 1817?

Giachino(or Gioachino) LoIacono born about 1794 Santa Margherita di Belice/don't know d.o.d.
He married Francesca Billello sometime before 1815. She was brn about 1795 and died Jan 10, 1863 Contessa Entellina. They had 11 children, several died young. They were in Santa Margherita until at least 1828, that's the year of their last born child in Santa Margherita and the rest I believe were born in Contessa.

I appreciate any help, info or ideas.
