I'm looking for anyone who might be related through my paternal grandmother: Felicia Caminitti. I also welcome anyone who has knowledge about this family. I do have a bit of information but it's spotty. A brief summary of what i know:
Carmelo Caminiti, son of Filippo Caminitti and Felicia Gallo was born in San Filippo del Mela, Messina on 31 Jan 1886. He married Maria Facciola (17 Sept 1905 in Italy before coming to US) and together they had 7 children: Philip (who was born in San Filippo del Mela), Mildred (married DeVita), Felicia (my grandmother, married Ragonese), Josephine (married O'Connor & Townsend), Anita (married Franco), and Helen (married Mirrione). There was an additional child, Patrick, but he died in infancy. Except for Philip, all the children were born and grew up in Brooklyn, NY.
In addition, Carmelo had 2 brothers and 2 sisters: Domenico (married Maria Lopez), Francesco, Maria (married Eugenio Scotto -- or maybe Scotti), and Guiseppa.
Do you have the marriage publication 1881 of Filippo Caminitti age 22(1859) son of Domenico Caminitti age 53(1828) and deceased Maria Trifiro to marry Felicia Gallo age 22(1859)daughter of Francesco Saverio Gallo age 53(1828)and Maria Formica PG LINK https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.3.1/T ... c=14215608
That cursive is a killer plus my Italian is only very basic. Would you be able and willing to tell me basically what the record says? There's quite a bit there but i can't really make much of it. I think i was able to see that the date was 28 March....
Thanks in advance and i completely understand if you are too busy!

It is now clear why you are a master and i am just a newbie. I have dedicated my family tree research to my 4 grandparents to whom i was very close. After all these years, i knew the least about my beloved Grandma and with your help, i now have more on her family than any other branch. Thank you so much; i am so excited to share this information with my dad and two cousins who are also Carmelo Caminitti decendants. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
