Help Find:Anna Morabito born Apr5 1941

Postby MANRAT1960 » 12 Jul 2011, 18:27

Hi, my name is Randy and I am trying to help my father-in-law locate his missing sister since WWII. Placido Morabito and his wife Maria Antonia Morabito (born Sposari), had 2 children; Benito Morabito, born Aug2 1938, Messina(my father-in-law) and Anna Morabito, born Apr5 1941. During WWII ,Benito's father died and his mother was killed in a bombing raid. Benito went with his mother's side of the family and as a young boy was sent to Cornwall, Canada to live with his Uncle.He was adopted and was renamed Joseph Carra. His sister,Anna went to live with his father's relatives somewhere in Italy we believe, and has never been heard of since.Please help us to find Anna and/or her family.

Request the birth records of both children from the town of Messina. Be sure to enclose soe photo ID and state your relationship. You father in law should sign the letter. Ask for extracts with notations. There are form letters on line.

Thanks for the advice.The birth records have already been obtained and they have no additional information. We received a letter from the Ambassador of Italy in 1991 stating that "the said municipality advised that the name in question was cancelled from their files for failure to locate following the 1951 census.

Hi MANRAT,
This seems obvious and I don't mean to offend but is this a possibility?

Hi, from this info, Anna Morabito in 1951 was no resident in Messina; it is a problem if Messina replied so...
if you want, maybe you can write a email to:

cronacamessina @ gazzettadelsud.it ( NO SPACES)

Messina newspaper "La Gazzetta del Sud"
http://www.gazzettadelsud.it/pag_ChiSiamo.aspx

if they can edit your request, in italian; who read the newspaper can contact you;
you can write ( if you want) so:
Spett.le CRONACA DI MESSINA-LA GAZZETTA DEL SUD,

mi chiamo..... ( your name) e sono cittadino canadese.
Scrivo nella speranza che possiate aiutarmi nel ritrovare la sorella di mio suocero, di cui non abbiamo più notizie dagli anni "50.
Spiego brevemente la nostra storia di famiglia:
mio suocero Benito MORABITO, nato a Messina nel 1938, è figlio di Placido MORABITO e Maria Antonia SPOSARI.
Durante la Seconda Guerra Mondiale entrambi i genitori morirono.
Benito fu mandato in Canada a vivere con dei parenti del padre.
Egli fu successivamente adottato e cambiò il suo nome.

Benito aveva una sorella Anna MORABITO nata a Messina nel 1941.
Dopo la morte dei genitori di lei non abbiamo più notizie.
Tramite l'Ambasciatore italiano siamo a conoscenza dal 1991 che il suo nominativo non appare nel censimento del 1951.
Non sappiamo dove ella sia.
Saremmo felici di ritrovarla o comunque di avere sue notizie, e grati se vorrete aiutarci pubblicando questa richiesta se possibile.
Grazie per la sensibilità, distinti saluti,
..............your name
...............your address
............your email


Obviously it is only a attempt, but, there's no harm in trying...
