Looking for family birth records in italy & sicily

Postby kimpanattoni » 01 Oct 2016, 21:52

Hello, everyone!

My great grandfather and grea grandmother have little to nothing for birth records on our family tree. My grandfather is Guiseppe Panattoni, and he was born in Italy, while my grandmother, Lena Faso was born in Sicily. I have little more than their birth year, but I hope being here can help find them!

What other info should I provide, even with such limited info to start with?

Thanks!

-Kim

Wow!

I did not expect such a flood of information and replies so soon, thank you!

I wanted to share this with you re: my family while I get a chance to read through all of your replies. I have a photograph of the 1940 census that has great grandma and grandpa on it, though his name reads Joseph in this. I hope this will help some.

Lena was born in 1898, just not sure where in Sicily. I suspect she is from somewhere around Cacamo from an old conversation with someone. In skimming through the replies, I see at least one of you, perhaps more, might have a lead on that already. Guiseppe's birth date and his parents names are not in the records I have. Hopefully we can find a city for his birth as well. I will be looking through all the replies soon, I have not had much time at a computer lately. :P

Thank you so much for all your replies, I will try to get back to each of you as soon as I can! :D
