Correction - Giuseppe Puma was born in 1859, not 1895. I transposed my digits the first time I posted.

I went through the hints by person a few months ago. Is this something different than a hint? Currently not subscribed. Only subscribe one month at a time a couple of times a year.

Good morning.

I think that I may have seen some information on this person on www.familysearch.org.

Click on Europe link, then Italy. Access Italian civil and search records, then enter name of person that you are seeking.

Good luck.

You may wish to try again.
On left side of page click "Europe"
You may have not gone far enough. You have to identify the continent that you are researching. They are listed on left side of page.
First click "Europe", then on next page on left side of page click "Italy" (6 entries).
Next page you will find: Italy Births and Baptisms 1806-1900; Italy Death and Burials 1809-1900; Italy Marriages 1809-1900.
I found several entries for Nicolo(a) Puma (Di Puma) on all three links.
Goof luck.

All the links that you mentioned are for years 1900 and before. My Nicolo Puma was born in 1901. Therefore, any Nicolo Puma's that are found for the years before he was born would not be him.

Thank you. He must have died young before the 1901 Nicolo Puma was born. It's sad how often that happened. Did you find that record at a Mormon Family History Center. Normally you have to send to Utah or contact the specific Italian town to obtain that type of record (and most Italian towns send you a form, not the record even when you specifically ask for the record). To my knowledge, you can't find them anywhere else. If you can, please let me know.

I goofed. That was a marriage record you sent, not a birth record. I still very much appreciate that. I had the date through an Italian form, but I prefer records over forms.

Marty, are these "Racalmuto' records found by looking at the hints shown by Ancestry.com for specific people on my family tree or is there a path through Ancestry.com where all the Racalmuto records in the Italian language for all people (whether on my tree or not) are stored together for anyone to review? I've never once found such a record looking at people hints on Ancestry.com. If there is a path to get to these records, please tell me what it is and I will take out a one month subscription to find them. I can get a lot done, being retired, with a one month subscription (the last time I found 5,000 new people for my tree).
