When did Jasper came to America...? Is he your G2 or G3grandfather? When was he born etc... Maybe you could clarify the name Jasper as well... what is the date on the letter addressed to Felicia Ventimiglia? Who wrote the letter to Felicia etc... do you know what is written in the letter? This forum is great for help... just need a little more info from you! mfjp

Jasper went to Ireland first I think, about 1860 not sure. Then onto Cardiff, Wales with his wife Annie Neville. The letter to Felicia was dated 1951, Jasper died about 1955. (he was very old!)

Hi: Felicia Ventimiglia married BIUSO exact spelling...(=in Buiso mistaken)
this are Biuso in Palermo, nobody in Via(=street) Matteo Bonello
http://www.paginebianche.it/pb/cerca?bt ... mo&x=0&y=0
The Via Matteo Bonello are near Palermo's Cathedral ...
Now: for know some info about ancestor parents, I think are necessary to send an letter to someone of this persons, Ventimiglia or Biuso..
But are better if you know also the first name of father Jasper and mother's name for send an request to Palermo Common about"certificato Storico di Famiglia"(=Family story certificate) of Jasper's father.. in this certificate are many infos about brthers and sisters of Jasper.. you have other details? Please let me know..

Thank You :D

I have found a ventimiglia at Via M.Bonello.

Sto scrivendo una lettera nel mio italiano migliore!

:? :oops:

I am very happy!

Thank You Very Much :D

I do not know the names of Jasper's parents. He "left!" Palermo when he was 12. Apparently he was a bit of a loony! 8O

Ciao

It's shure your ggrandfather name was GASPARE VENTIMIGLIA, Jasper is it's translation in english. Ventimiglia is very common in Sicily and the family has a very long and significant history.
Felicia Ventimiglia in Biuso (Biuso is correct, not Buiso) means that mrs Felicia Ventimiglia married a man whos family name was BIUSO and you wrote that the family Biuso-Ventimiglia lived in Palermo. The correct address is VIA MATTEO BONELLO and this Bonello street is in fron of the Cathedral in Palermo.
There are BIUSO still in Palermo and they live from 1 Km to 3 km distant from the Cathedral. They are:

Biuso Caterina
Via Cappuccini, 224
90129 Palermo
tel: 091 6512193

Biuso Francesco
Largo Aristippo Enrico, 1
90135 Palermo
tel:
091 211060

Biuso Salvatore
Via Scandurra Francesco Enrico, 8
90128 Palermo
tel:
091 420454

Biuso Onofrio
Via Gubbio, 1
90135 Palermo
tel:
091 315136

Biuso Concetta
Viale Amedeo D'Aosta, 41
90123 Palermo
tel:
091 6214870

That's all
Bye

HEI there is a Ventimiglia Maria in Via Bonello and another Ventimiglia very close (the owner of a caffè). They are

Ventimiglia Maria
Via Bonello Matteo, 21
90134 Palermo
tel:
091 327856

Ventimiglia Antonio (Caffe' e Pasticceria)
Via Vittorio Emanuele, 434
90134 Palermo
tel:
091 6512185

If the sister of your ggrandfather was Maria Ventimiglia. Remember that many father gives to their son the name of the grandfathers....

Ciao
