I'm looking for information about the Patella family in Sicily. Carmela Patella was born on May 6, 1881 in Palermo and died on April 2, 1955 in New York. She married Filippo Antonio Castrovinci. Their marriage bann was on August 26, 1900 in Palermo and September 2, 1900 in Frazzano. The marriage itself was on October 6, 1900 in Palermo. Her brother, Salvatore, was born ABT 1870 in Palermo. He got married, but I don't know the spouse's name, just that he had a son named Filippo who was born in 1905 in Palermo. A sister's name was Marianna Patella, who was born on March 18, 1874 in Palermo and died on November 10, 1960 in New York. She was married to Nunzio Castrovinci on August 1, 1895 in Palermo, a brother of Filippo Castrovinci. I don't have marriage documents for Nunzio and Marianna. With their ancestors, I only have names. The parents were Filippo Patella and Francesca Carmela Tripi. A brother of Filippo, Antonino, married Maria Pennino and had a daughter, Antonia. Antonia married Giovanni Borrnso. Another brother of Filippo was named Andrea Patella. He married Teresa Catania, and had a daughter named Paola Patella. Paola married Salvatore Scuderi. Salvatore's parents were Giovanni Scuderi and Ninfa Duca. The parents of Filippo, Antonino, and Andrea Patella were Salvatore R Patella and Anna R Guttuso. The fact that they both have "R" as a middle initial makes me wonder about that part. Anyway, this is all the information I have about the family. I hope someone is able to help me find out more. Thank you so much.
Does anyone have any ideas about the Patella family? Also, does anyone know what the proper name for someone called "Fifi Patella" might be? Apparently, this is a relation, but I haven't a clue about the name. I just know he was called that.

I think my information came from a website done by Hugh Tornabene. At least, I think that was the name. There were listings there. I'm wondering now if some of the info was wrong. I suppose it's possible.
Could you please post a link to the main page for the Palermo records on the Family Search site? I seemed to be having problems getting to that page using the search function for some reason. Maybe it was a problem with the site. Also, are there other sites where you can see Palermo records?
I was trying to go through Palermo records and seem to be having trouble finding someone. Carmela Patella was born on May 6, 1881 in Palermo and died on April 2, 1955 in New York. She married Filippo Antonio Castrovinci. Their marriage bann was on August 26, 1900 in Palermo and September 2, 1900 in Frazzano. The marriage itself was on October 6, 1900 in Palermo. I wanted to find her actual birth record, so that I can confirm the names of the parents. I was surprised that I didn't see it, with me knowing her exact birth date. Could anyone help me out with this? It didn't seem to be an issue when I was researching Castelbuono records.
According to the Birth indexes of Palermo, Carmela Patella, daughter of Filippo and Francesca Tripi was born on May 7, 1881 (vol. 162 act number 1506).
She had the following siblings:

There are births, marriages and deaths indexes. The documents are not available for online viewing (except those of the hamlets of Palermo, available on the website www.familysearch.org).
Francesca Tripi's parents were not mentioned in the index.
Are you interested in the complete family tree? If so, please, send me a private message!
Are these birth, marriage, and death indexes on the family search website, or somewhere else? Also, do you happen to know whether or not either indexes or records for Naples are available? Unless they were made available in the last couple months or so, I don't think those are on the family search site. I'm trying to research certain Franconeri and Grano families there, and don't have the time to do research on the microfilm. The one time I had time to go to a family history center, it didn't end up being open. I think that was the only one in my area. I think I posted a topic awhile ago about them on this site.
