Leo Capra (Crapa) Born in Corleone, Sicily, Italy in 1800s

Postby Beatles78 » 19 Jun 2013, 21:30

Hello,

I have an ancestor named Antonino (Anthony) Capra (or Crapa) who was born in Corleone, Sicily, Italy on 12/3/1857, dying on 5/24/1945 in Cook County, IL. (He immigrated in 1890) He was married to Rosa Cicirello, also born in 1857 in Corleone, Sicily Italy...she immigrated in 1903, and died in 1939.

Does anyone have any additional information on Anthony's parents -- Leo Capra and Josephine (no maiden name). Neither of them immigrated to the United States...and I do not have either of their birthdates.

Any information or records on their birth or marriage...or death would be appreciated!

Thank you,
Stephanie

Hi Marty!

Thank you - I'm so glad i found this site...as I've been at a standstill with my Crapa line for awhile. :)

Thank you so much for your quick response and the information! However, that link you gave me looks like it is to a marriage certificate, not a baptismal record. Did you attach the wrong link, by chance?

Otherwise, thank you! Do you see any further birth/marriage records of Leonardo or Giuseppa so I can acquire birthdates on them and go back further?

Thanks again!!
