Seeking Ancestor's Information from Sicily

Postby Mardi » 14 May 2012, 00:06

Looking for information on Giacomo Calamusa born about 1792 in Calatafimi Segesta, Sicily and died October 20, 1862 also in Calatafimi Segesta, Sicily.

The information that I have is that he married Antonina Milana, about 1815
They had three children, that I know of, Liborio, Melchiorre [Marchione], and Bartolomea

I am needing help finding information on their marriage and their children's birth information.

Also have that Giacomo Calamusa was married to Maria Garitta, don't have any other information then that.

Appreciate any help...thanks
Mardi

Thank you Michael31 for sending me the above information. I was more or less looking for Catholic Church Records. Images have been sent to me on other relatives that were born, married and died in Sicily.

I will copy the information you have sent and put it in my Calatafimi-Segesta Family File.
Thank you for your time.

How can I find out if there are any Calamusa's in Calatafimi or Corleone that are also doing their Family Genealogy. At one time I received a message from someone that gave me information but by the time I responded to him, he had passed away.
Do not know where to start searching in Italy/Sicily???

Have you tryed the church records at Family History Library on microfilm for rent for viewing and copying
1534-1910 Chiesa cattolica. San Silvestro Papa (Calatafimi, Trapani) Matrimoni 1620-1910 FHL INTL Film 2015877 or 1619-1910 Chiesa cattolica. San Giuliano Martire (Calatafimi, Trapani) Matrimoni 1770-1910 FHL INTL Film 2015712 they have films on marriage records
Since Calatafimi-Segesta is a small town I would think one of these early church film records have your information you are seeking
