Grandfather's family

Postby jjjjd_224 » 23 Apr 2012, 22:21

My grandfather Francesco Morabito was born on 4 Feb 1886 in Messina, Sicily. I have sent numerous requests to the commune for a copy of his birth certificate with any excerp regarding other children and the date of his fathers death. I have received two completly different birth certificates wrong year, wrong parents names and then one stating there was no such individual born in Messina.
His father's name was Guiseppe Morabito and his mother's name was Anna (or Annetta) Cominale or Trovato. The reason I have two last names for her is that when Guiseppe died she remarried. Don't know which is the remarried last name or the maiden name, Grandfather's records bounced back and forth regarding his mother's maiden name. Any help would be appreciated.

I have been able to acquire this info, what I really need is a birth certificate (this way I can find out his mother's real maiden name, info on whether there were other siblings, death of his father, etc.) Anything from Messina would be helpful, since I have had no luck with them.
