Trying to find out how to research records from Morreale, Sicily. I have found my g. grandmother on the manifest of the USS Lazio that set sail from Palermo on 16 Aug 1907 and arrived on 1 Sept 1907 in New York, NY. Her name was Filippa Faraci (Philomena Farace Spinnato on her death certificate). I also have her parents names: Pietro Faraci/Norma Meseatta born on 15 Aug 1884. But I have been unsuccessful in finding anything more. Would be grateful for any assistance....Thank you!

I want to say thanks for responding to my request....Its a little late, but I haven't been on this site in a while- I actually forgot I had posted and found it again this morning. In response to where I got the birthdate for Filippa Farace - I have a copy of her death certificate and it shows her being born on 15 Aug 1884. This has helped me tremendously and I am so thankful!
