Great Grandfather search

Postby piazza1018 » 09 Jun 2012, 23:05

I'm looking to find my great grandfather's parents. His name is Eugenio (Eugene) Piazza born in Palermo, Sicily, on the 27th of August, 1891.

He married Carmela Piazza (born May 1898 in Sicily) after he went to the United States. (They were 3rd cousins I think.)

I believe that his father's name was Giuseppe Piazza, but I'm not positive.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Even sending me in the right direction of where to search!

Try www.familysearch.org. I think Palermo records are now on line, if not go to one of the Family History Centers and rent the microfilm.

No Marianna Piazza that I know of, sorry.

Thanks everyone for this great info!

Also, I know that there's a record of Eugenio Piazza in the Como and Lecco, Lombardy, Italy, Civil Registration Records. Anyone know where I can access those records?
