Sebastiana Fortuna Baffo/Simone Baffo

Postby BarbaraBaffo » 13 Apr 2011, 16:14

I am charting my heritage and come come to a standstill. My great grandmother, Sebastiana Fortuna and great grandfather Simone Baffo were from Melilli, Sicilia. I don't believe they ever came to the US and would like to know more about them. My best estimate is that they were born in the 1860's to 1870's. Where can I research their birth or death records? Sebastiana Fortuna died during childbirth, I was told with my grandfather Peter who was born in 1893. Any information would be invaluable to me.

Some records are available on Ancestry.com for Melilli, but they begin in 1900... :(

Do you have the year of death for Simone Baffo?

All I know that Simone Baffo died before 1947.

I'm trying to navigate the The LDS (Mormon) Family History Library website. I am finding it confusing but will perservere. Thanks for your guidance and please let me know if anything shows up.
