Looking for Salvatore Conti from Vallelunga

Postby CiaoJudy » 13 Jul 2011, 00:00

Ciao! I am looking for birth and marriage records for Salvatore Conti. He was born in Vallelunga, Caltinesetta approx. 1875. Died in his 40's. Marriage to Ignatia (Agnes)Battaglia. Any direction and/or help would be wonderful. Just starting my search and any help would be appreciated. Salvatore & Agnes are my great grandparents. Went from Vallelunga to Independence, Louisiana/Ascension Parish.

I believe that he was born before 1875... I checked the births registrations of Vallelunga and the only Salvatore Conti I found is this one:

Conti Salvatore was born in Vallelunga on the day 6 february 1867, son of Loreto Conti (age 26) son of the late Salvatore and of his wife Loreta Ognibene (age 23) daughter of the late Vincenzo-

In fact I found the arrival manifest on the same site (Ancestry.com) but I'm unable now to post the image for you, however it contains these dates:

Is it possible that their son Loreto moved to Ohio?

from Ancestry.com:

City: Akron
County: Summit
State: Ohio
Birthplace: Italy
Birth Date: 12 Apr 1887
