Children of Rosario Caruso and ? Angela/lina in Sicily

Postby pdchenderson13 » 12 Dec 2011, 00:19

Hi Everyone,
Really hope someone can help.

Does anyone know of any Carusos born 1890 - early 1900s in or around Canicatti Sicily? I am looking for my Great grandfather Antonio Carusos family.
Antonio is my paternal grandfather. He was one of 13 children. Antonio died in his thirties, and after his death his family (The carusos) did not keep in contact with my grandmother Maria (was Virzi) and her three children Angelina, Rosario and Crocetta/Crocifissa Caruso.

I therefore don't know any of their names, but know Antonios father was called Rosario (as is my father in keeping with tradition) and I am guessing Antonios mother was called Angela/Angelina as is my aunt.

I have a photo of Antonio, taken after his fathers death "fu Rosario" This confirms his father is definitly called Rosario.

My father says he definitly has cousins in US, but has no idea who or where? I think I could be looking for a needle in a haystack.......
If anyone can help I would be most grateful.
Grazie Patrizia

Grazie Suanj.

Would you be able to help with the rest of the wording,

I can make out some of it..."L'anno milleottocentonovantaquattro al ora dieci e quaranta nella casa Comunale. Avante di me Dottore.......?????????
Ufficiale dello stato civile del Comune di Canicatti e comparso Caruso Rosario di anno cinquantatre ?? domiciliato in questo ? mi ha dichiarato che alle ora venti e minute quindici? del di due del ? mese nella casa posta in ? alle numero da ? moglie Farrugio Angela, casalinga ???

A quanto sopra e a quest atto sono stati presenta qual testimoni La? Calogero di anni quarantadue?? ...??


I wonder if you can give me the Italian wording and also the translation, as the writing is a little confusing.

Many Thanks. Graze mille!
Patrizia

Translation of suanj's transcription :-)

In the year 1894 on day 4 of September at hour 10 and 40 minutes (10:40 AM) at the town hall. Before me Dr Nicolo Stella, senior alderman representing the mayor in his absence as officer of the vital registrations, appeared Rosario Caruso, age 53, a cart driver/teamster, residing in this town, to declare that at hour 20 and 15 minutes (8:15 PM) on day 2 of the current month at the house in Folche quarter (no number given), to his wife Angela Farrugio, housewife, living with him, was born a male baby which he presented to me and to whom was given the name Antonino.
To this above act was given witness by Calogero La Verna (?), age 42, peasant farmer, and Diego Guccione, age 51, peasant farmer, both residing in this town.
I read the present act to all the participants and only I signed my name.
Dr. N. Stella

Suanji and Tessa, just wanted to say a huge thank you for your help. The birth certificate you found, and the definitive names of my paternal Great Grandparents (especially Angela Farrugia) has led to many more discoveries.

I now have discovered from the same parents (Rosario and Angela Farrugia)the following children

1.Antonino as you said who died a few days after birth in 1891
2.Calogero born in 1885. (I think he may have married a providenza Grombaiai and went to Tunisia as he was on a shipping list for America that stated he did not embark, ....true love???)
3.Salvatore born in 1883, but who sadly died in 1884
4.Vincenzo born in 1881
5.Francesca born in 1878
6.Rita born in 1874, who also died as a child aged 10
7.Gioachino born either 1875
8.Maria born 1873


I also discovered the name of two of Rosarios brothers- Mattheo and Pietro Caruso. They were all born in Palermo, and their father was called Antonino caruso and their mother Margherita La Barbera,

I have mainly been reading the on-line records on ancestry, but the Palermo records are facts with no images.

I'll keep looking.

Grazie
