Surname: Musico

Postby David64 » 12 Mar 2006, 04:11

My Grandfather Giovanni Musico came to Canada in the Early 1900s from Santo Stefano in Calabria! All I know of him was that his parents were Francesco Musico and Maria Lucifero. My Grandfather was born in 1887. I also know he brought his sisters Katerina who eventually moved to New York, and Francesca. His sister Antonia remained in Italy! I am not sure how or where to go to find any more information. Any help would be appreciated.

Hello, since there are 52 municipalities and hamlets called Santo Stefano in Italy

http://www.paginebianche.it/execute.cgi ... c=&x=0&y=0

I made a little research and there is a big community of Musicò living in Messina area, Sicily.
Since in Messina area there is Santo Stefano di Camastra, I would suggest to contact its civil record office

Comune
Ufficio di Stato Civile
Via Palazzo, 35
98148 Santo Stefano Di Camastra (ME)
Italy

Santo Stefano di Camastra civil record microfilm(the same one saved at Archivio di Stato di Messina) are from 1820 to 1865

I hope it helps, bye Riccardo :lol:
