Dominic and Lena Fontana

Postby saralkoenig » 20 Mar 2015, 02:14

I'm trying to locate my great grandparents birth records in Sicilia. Dominic and Lena Fontana (Fontana is maiden name as well) Birth years would have been around 1870 and 1885. They immigrated to New York (I think) around 1898. They had 8 or 9 children including Mary, Sam, Mike, Jack, Jelina, Corda, Victor and Annie. They settled in Louisiana. Any help is appreciated.
