South Catania, Castiglione, Italy - Camuglia Maiden Name

Postby Sambina » 30 May 2006, 05:49

I wanted to see if anyone could tell me how to find my GGmother. I have the information from her travel to the states. I also have the information about her marriage, death and children.

Yet I have found nothing of her family that was in Italy or any information about her in Italy.

She is said to have several siblings that stayed in Italy and yet I can't find her or her family in Italy. I have included the information below. If you could help It would be appreciated.


Her name was Vincenzina (Vincenza or Jenny) Camuglia
She came to the US with her brother Antonio on[align=center]
06 Sep 1920 From: Castiglione, Cantani
South Catania, Castiglione, Italy
[/align]

According to the ship records she was 26 and her brother was 24. I don't think she was 26 because her marriage license in Rochester, NY said she was 25 at the time of the marriage. Also her death in 1928 she was said to be 29.

A year later she was married and pregnant in Rochester, NY

I have wondered if she had known her to be husband before they came to America.

The only information I have about her parents is on the Marriage license and that says:


Her father was Salvatore Camuglia (Who I don't think ever came to the US) and her mother Rose Santora (I think that is the spelling of her last name. It could be Santoro.)

So does anyone know anything that could possibly help me?
I haven't been able to find anything and I really wish that I could.

Thank you for any help you have to offer.

:P

Sambina,

You have already posted this request!

Here is the link to the films for the vital records 1820-1829 for the comune of Catiglione di Sicilia (Catania)..

http://www.familysearch.org/Eng/Library ... o+civile++

Here is a link to locate your local LDS(Mormans) Family History Center.

http://www.familysearch.org/Eng/Library ... et_fhc.asp

You rent the films @ your local FHC for about $5.50/5.75. When they come in from SLC, Utah, you can view & copy the records at the center.

Hope this helps.

In order to research family in Italy you must identify the town of origin......which you have done.....now you must write to the ufficio of the comune for Any and All records, or the local parish....... unless you are lucky enough to have microfilm available thru the Lds.....and there is as Jcms has found.......you will not be able to conduct research online for Italian records as there is Very little available.

How would I find the information to write to the ufficio of the comune?

I can't figure out the phone listings and I wanted to write to the local church or churchs and government.

Thank you.

Thank you very much.

Do you have any IM?

Just wondering if maybe I could catch you on there if I am having a hard time with these letters.

Either way thank you for your help.
