Guiseppe Rifici, S. Agata, Italy

Postby kkdemarco » 25 Oct 2011, 15:14

Good Morning,
I am looking for information for a Guiseppe Rifici from S. Agata Italy.
I believe his wife is Antonina Caito and they had three children,
Calogero (b.22 Sept 1887), Rosaria (b. approx 1885) and Grazia (b.8 May 1891). Grazia is my husbands grandmother. Any information would be very appreciated.

I believe it is S. Agata Militello but not certain. The children all settled first in Cleveland, Ohio. I am not sure if the parents ever left Italy. Thank you for your quick response.
Regards,
Kim

Hello Adelfio,
After more research this evening, I can confirm that it is in fact Sant Agata Militello, in Messina Sicily. Now I have to find out more information for Guiseppe Rifici and Antonina Caito. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
