Grandfather - Antonio Borgia - San Fratello Sicily

Postby georgezavattoni1914 » 31 Oct 2013, 19:18

Would anyone be able to point me in a direction where I could find information on my grandfather - Antonio Borgia. He was born on November 11, 1894 in San Fratello Sicily. I believe this is in the province of Messina. He was a soldier in WW1, was injured in the war, received several medals and later in life moved to the USA with his family.
Any help would be greatly appreciated -
thank you

Unfornately the online records only go to 1910 so the marriage record you would have to send to San Fratello Messina for the marriage record

Thank you Marty - I sent an email yesterday to an office in Sicily. Will wait to see what comes back. Fingers crossed. Any ideas or suggestions on war records? I know my grandfather received several medals and would love to know which ones they were.

I just wanted to let you know that I received an email from someone in Italy who can send a copy of my grandfathers paperwork. they asked for several euro to be paid via paypal - which is no big deal. Am scared to send a copy of my id though. has anyone else sent identification to Italy via email?
