Giaramita Surname

Postby katsfamilytree » 07 Feb 2012, 00:46


I am needing information on an ancestor of my step father. Below is the only verified information I have.

John Michael Giaramita
Born in: Campobello di Mazara, Trapani, Sicilia, Italy 7-18-1877

He was married to: Lena Giaramita (do not know her maiden name)

He immigrated in 1902 and ended up in California where him and his wife died.

I want to find out information on who John's parents are? Also if there is any maiden name information on Lena.

If anyone can do anything that would be great. Thanks so much
