need help locating info on Governali and DeMiceli

Postby joegov » 29 Mar 2013, 03:47

I am trying to locate information on one set of my great grandparents: Calogero Governali and Giacomina DiMiceli. I believe that they all came from Corleone in Sicily, or near that area. I don't think they ever left Italy, but a number of their children did. Some of their children were named Bernardo, Caterina, Chico Paolo, Maria, Marida, Matteo and Giuseppe (My Grandfather).

Thanks

Hello joegov :D

Can you provide some details (dates of birth and marriage, where settled in US, etc.) for those who immigrated? We try to trace back using US records to find place of birth.

Do you know what year your Grandfather arrived? There are quite a few "Giuseppe Governali" in the Ellis Island records... most from Corleone.

ALSO - do you have approx. years of birth for your GGF and GGM?
