Taormina, Sicily

Postby Villa Flora » 09 Apr 2012, 18:40

I am hoping to trace my husband's family tree. His surname is Fama. Sometimes the family name has been recorded as Fama-Lombardo. He was born in Taormina, Sicily in 1939. Can anyone point me to a website that deals with Sicilian ancestry please? 8)

Welcome :-)

Here is a link to a free site http://www.familysearch.org - and specifically the Taormina civil registrations from 1866 -1910
Though your husband's birth record will not be there, it is possible you may find the birth records of his parents if you know the approx. date of birth, and if they were also born in Taormina :-)

https://familysearch.org/search/image/i ... %3D1887904

For example, at the end of 1909 records there are 3 FAMA listed
I don't know if any of them are related to you husband...
