Alia, Palermo, Sicily birth and marriage records

Postby mascarellafam » 12 Aug 2011, 08:36

Any ideas on how to order these myself? I have a few Italian friends that can translate but I do not know where to get them from.

Thanks!

Thank-you both very much!

I have been to the local Family History centers 3 times in the past few days and no one was there! I have left messages. Will keep trying. I did find the correct films from their site.

I was actually at the Family History place in Utah a few weeks ago, but did not have nearly the info I do now. I was given an amazing "cheat sheet" by the Elder who helped me. It has a lot of words that are common and letter translation from the 1600's forward. Very good stuff! I have it in my other home in Florida and am going back there soon. I will post it when I get it.

I do need certified copies as I am trying to get Italian citizenship.

Again, many thanks!

TERMINI :
Seeking Birth/Marriage/Immigration records for my great-grandparents, both from Alia-Palermo-Sicily: SALVADOR(SALVATORE/sp?) TERMINI [b. 8/13/1846, son of FRANK(?) Termini & wife Mandaland Chereto(sp?)] and his wife ANTONINA SFERLAZZA [b. 9/15/1851, dau of Bellina & Charley(sp?) Sferlazza]; married ~1875 + 5 children; all immigrated to Louisiana USA ~1898. One of their children was my grandfather: Carolus/Charles Vincenzo/Vincent TERMINI [b. 10/22/1887, Alia-Palermo-Sicily], and I hope to find records on him too.
