Locating a convent/orphanage

Postby lanza » 26 Apr 2015, 14:27


I'm wondering if anyone has any idea about a convent and orphanage run by the suore de carita, st. Vincent de Paul nuns in the early 20th century in Trabia Bagheria. My great aunt was sent there after the 1908 earthquake in Messina. Her name was Angela Lanza and had a connection with Pietro Lanza de Trabia and his wife Giulia. I am looking for any records that survived. I am the author of Between the Cracks about my great aunt's life. I am writing a second novel and would like to know more about her stay at the orphanage.
