Hello, would you happen to know the town of origin? If not you could post your immigrant Ruffino ancestor's information and we might be able to determine that for you.

Thanks!

Jim :)

Hi Alicia,

If you want to trace the family, the LDS church (Mormons) has filmed both the civil records (birth, marriage, & death acts) & the church records (sacraments) for the town of Randazzo.

Here are the available films.

Civil (1820-1929)

Church.....There are records for three.

And to help with translating the records:

Italian-English genealogical word list.

This is what I found about Ruffini

RUFFINI
RUFFINONI Ruffini è specifico del nord con ceppi anche nell'anconetano e maceratino, nel teramano e nel Lazio, Ruffinoni, rarissimo, è specifico della zona tra Milano, Lecco e Bergamo, derivano dal cognomen latino Rufus e, da questi, dal nome medioevale italiano Rufinus. Circa l'antichità dei cognomi Ruffini e Ruffinoni, in un atto di cessione di terreni, risalente all'anno 1136, leggiamo: "...Quinta iacet a Bremedasca et est pertice .VII.; ab una parte terra Rufini Gumberti, a secunda Petri Vecia, a tercia via. Sexta iacet a la Turrisella et est pertice .V.; ab una parte terra Petri Vecia, a duabus via Bremedasca et alia via...." e più avanti: "... Quarta decima iacet in Pascario de Solora et est pertice octo; ab una terra Sancti Michaelis, ab alia Uberti Rufinoni, a tercia Petri Flaccacicer...".

I hope it helps, bye Riccardo
