Hi there

You need to tell us which town your grandfather was born so that we can help you. I notice that some of your family are from Lipari. If your grandfather was also born in Lipari then there are currently Lipari records on Family Search. Here is the link for the years 1901-1910. You need to turn the pages (click on the arrow) until you get to 1908.

https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.3.1/T ... ,179307401

When you find your grandfather's birth record, it wll give his parents details. Post the link here to your grandfather's birth record, we will help with the translation and hopefully be able to help you find your greatgrandparents marriage record and birth records. Let us know how you get on.

I ended up having some spare time to locate your grandfather's birth certificate:
https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.3.1/T ... ,179307401

It is Image 602, Birth Record No 218, (born on 6 September 1908, as you said). His parents were:

Father: Antonino Messina, 39(1869), villico(farmer)
Mother: Grazia Di Lorezo

I'm off line shortly so maybe someone else can pick up this thread if you are needing any more help.
Angela :D

My father Said he was sure he was born in Lipari. If he wasn't that will mean I will have to widen my search. I will check if there is a possibility he was born in volcano as my grandfather's 1/2 brother lived in Vulcano.

Thanks Marty will have to check. What about Grazia Di lorenzo wife of Antonino any idea when she was born as the birth certificate was not clear on the year.
