Puma descendants from Racalmuto, Agrigento, Sicily

Postby rp76226 » 11 Aug 2014, 18:24

Looking for the descendants of three brothers and two sisters, children of Giuseppe Puma (1859 - 1922) and Francesca Curto (1869 - ?) who were married in Racalmuto on june 19, 1892:
1. The oldest was Giovanna Puma who died at age 18 on May 19, 1911 so possibly she never married.
2. Next was Giuseppa Puma (1895-1953) who married Vincenzo Diego Alessi (1883- ?) on December 16, 1911.
3. Then came Gaetano Puma (1897 - 1966) who married Rosa Scibetta on July 30, 1955 (possibly a second marriage - don't know).
4. Next was Nicolo Puma (1901 -1955). Don't know if he married.
5. Last born was Grazia Puma (1907 - 1983) who married Luciano Lentini on May 4, 1954. Don't know if there was a prior marriage.
Racalmuto has sent me some civil status records that certify information that was on the original civil records, but not the copies of the original civil records. All appeared to have lived their entire lives in Racalmuto.

While I appreciate the advice, I do not know of any living potential relatives in Racalmuto to write to. All of my great grandfather's children who lived to become adults emigrated to America (and they are all deceased now). My great grandfather had one brother, Giuseppe Puma, and as far as I know, no other siblings. I know about Giuseppe's children and some of their spouses from writing to Racalmuto. That's all I know. Those children are all deceased based on their ages all being above 115, plus knowing the death dates of the two youngest children. I definitely would contact a living relative in Italy if I knew of one.

Yes to the type of document, but I already have the one you sent. As a child of Giuseppe Puma and Francesca Curto, I am looking for her spouse, children and grand children. I have the birth records of all the children of Giuseppe Puma and Francesca Curto who I listed.
