I am researching my husband's family history. His grandfather's name was Frank Paul Fortunato, Jr. and his grandmother's name was Rose Veronica Catalano Fortunato. Anyone with information please contact me. Thank you!!

Hi,

If your Catalano ancestor was from Termini, Sicily, there is a great resource called the Termini Database that lists everyone born, married & died in Termini at least back to the late 1700s. It costs $50 per year and is worth it; I found a ton of family history (my great-grandpa was a Catalano from Termini).

Good luck,

Joe
