orfanotrofio Boccone dei Poveri/Palermo/Epifania Gennarina

Postby giulianadonnelly » 10 Mar 2011, 02:47

Ciao a tutti - I'm new to this site - it looks great!

My great-grandmother, Epifania Gennarina, was born in 1894-6 and raised in Palermo's orphanage Boccone dei Poveri. We have no other info of her in Sicily, other than the marriage notation in the Atti di Nascita of Santa Caterina di Villarmosa of her marriage to Epifanio (yeah, I know...) LoPorto, 16 May 1908.
Any ideas, anyone? Lots of documentation of her life in the US after arrival...

Grazie mille,
Giuliana

Dear Giuliana,
you can try to contact Palermo State Archive, and see is they
have his entry record at orphanage, or you can contact Palermo
vital statistics to have a copy of her birth record.
The entry record and or the birth record will explain what happened at her time of birth.
I hope it helps
bye Riccardo
