Giuseppei Cannizzaro of Castrofillipo 1915

Postby caterinacan » 14 Aug 2011, 02:13

Does anyone have any information on Giuseppe Cannizzaro born in 1915 in Castrofillipo? His mother died when he was five and his father remarried. Giuseppe ran away a few years after his mother died and was cared for by neighbours (we think).

Hello and welcome :-)

Most online records only go to 1910... :-(

Can you give us more details? Father's name, mother's name?
Did Giuseppe immigrate?

What information or records are you searching for?

Did this all happen in Italy, or did Giuseppe (and his father?) emigrate to the US?

The surname CANNIZZARO is found throughout Sicily (see this site)
http://italia.indettaglio.it/eng/cognom ... cilia.html

...but I can't find the name listed in the civile records indexes (birth, marriage, death) that I have been looking at in Castrofilippo... Was this his birth name, or the name of those who cared for him?

AND are you certain about the town of Castrofilippo?

The Mormon microfilms of civil records in Castrofilippo at the Family History Center only cover 1809-1910 ...

So if you think that Giuseppe was born in Castrofilippo, then you could write directly to the comune to request his birth record...

Address:
Ufficio dello Stato Civile
Piazza Paolo Borsellino
92020 Castrofilippo (AG)
ITALY
