Looking for ancestors

Postby coley3421 » 17 Jan 2012, 01:34

Hello,
I am looking for information about my great grandfather and his family. All I know right now is that his name is Giuseppe Triscari born in 1894. I think he was born near Caprileone Sicily (sp?) and maybe lived in Palermo?? He left for the United States in 1913. I would love to know who his parents were and if he had any siblings. Any info would be helpful.
Thanks

Thank you so much for the information! Would there be any place that I could find birth/death records for Nunzio and his wife Mary? I would love to know what they did in Italy...where they lived, if they had any other children and what Nunzio did for a living. You guys are awesome, I have been looking for information for such a long time...glad I found this site!

Hello again,
Thank you for the information to help start my search. I had ordered the records, unfortunately the family search center near my home has been closed for the last few months so I have not been able to view the records. I am searching my family history for my mother (Nunzio's daughter) and would like to give to her for mothers day. If anyone could please give me more information about Nunzio Triscari's family I would greatly appreciate it. I know Nunzio's father was Giuseppe, and Giuseppe's father was Nunzio born abt 1874. Can someone please help?
