Michele Costanzo - Looking for Parents

Postby Timmwill » 09 Apr 2016, 21:34

I am trying to locate the parents of Michele Costanzo.

He was born about 1790 in Fiumofreddo, Catania, Sicily
His wife was Serafina Fichera who was born in 1795 and died in 1822 in Fiumofreddo
He and Serafina had many children including:
Rosario
Francesco
Salvatore
Agatha
Maria
Rosaria

Based on common naming history, I would guess his father may have been named Francesco.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

You will need parish records for research before 1809.

Thanks Marty,

Very well could be. I was thinking based on naming traditions it might be Francesco but I guess it doesn't have to. Here is what I have below.

Michele Costanzo (about 1790)
2nd great grandfather

Francesco Costanzo (1812-1890)
son of Michele Costanzo

Michele Costanzo (1845-1906)
son of Francesco Costanzo

Francesco Costanzo (1880-1958)
son of Michele Costanzo

Valentino (Dean) Costanzo (1926 - living) - I am helping him with his family.

Thanks Marty, I will take a look and see what info I can find to support this. I always appreciate your help!!
