Need help finding Governali records in Corleone

Postby jinx57 » 23 Apr 2012, 19:44

Have been trying to find records for Girolamo(James)Governali who is my great grandfather. Birth date I have for him is July 20,1865. Girolamo's father was Octavio Governali, June 4 1837. Girolamo's mother Vita Castro, 1847. Girolamo's wife Antoinina Caruso, July 1, 1877. Any help with these records would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Thats mine. Having trouble finding records for this family in Corleone. Can't find any Girolamo's at all. As I don't speak much italian, navigating the records has been difficult.

I have been studying all of the Cascios (and the Castros, because they are the same families) in Corleone, and have a record on WikiTree for Octavio Governali http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Governali-12 and one for his wife, Vita Cascio/Castro. As a descendant, perhaps you'd like to fill in the profiles of those of their children that you know of? It's an open source genealogy site. I've found at least two living relatives who are also researching their family trees, one who still lives in Sicily.

Hi all, dipping my toe back into my Caruso ancestry, and found this thread.
How has the search continued? Do you have any further advancement on the Caruso connection? I am searching Caruso so very interested in Caruso from Palermo.

Grazie mille!
Ciao a presto
:)
