Surname "Viavattine" in Sicily

Postby MViavattine » 13 Sep 2006, 21:18

Hello! I'm new to this forum today and I'm researching my husband's family from Sicily; possibly of Palermo or Valguanara. Joseph Viavattine and Josephine (LaQuadra) Viavattine had 6 boys and 1 girl. Phillip Viavattine (born 1886), my husband's great grandfather, came to the USA along with his brother Anthony Viavattine. I am trying to find out information about his other siblings. It was said that 3 brothers - Sam, John, and Frank Viavattine went to South America (don't have a specific place), and a sister Carmella Viavattine, stayed in Italy. Angello was killed in service in Italy. I am trying to locate information about the brothers in South America or the sister in Italy. Can anyone help me?

Thanks, Maria!


Hi MViavattine,

I see that the website for Caltanisessetta (provided by Maria) has an email address for the city hall. You can request Philip's (Filippo) birth act & immigration information on his siblings via email....should be in Italian....see link below.

To trace the family, the LDS Church (Mormans) has filmed censuses, church records, & civil records (birth, marriage, death acts) for the town of Caltanisessetta.

Here is a link to census films (covers 1584-1815).

http://www.familysearch.org/Eng/Library ... siastici++


Link to the church films (1539-1912)

http://www.familysearch.org/Eng/Library ... siastici++

Link to the civil films (1820-1910)

http://www.familysearch.org/Eng/Library ... o+di+Nic++

You can order/rent these films from your local LDS-Family History Center. Depending on your location they cost $5.50/$5.75 per month & can be renewed.

Link to locate your nearest FHC.

These are some databases for arrival to South America. They are free sites, but the 1st one you do have to register.

Hope this helps. Let us know if you need anything else or have any questions.

Good luck in your research & keep us posted on your progress.

Hey Nonna J,

Am going to try A and relink the images for you but frankly its been a long time. All the programs I've tried to access have been giving me trouble and then for the second time this week I crashed my computer.

Just got it up and running since 11:30 this morning so you can bet I'm not in the best of moods right now.

Hi MViavattine,

Hope you have your preferences set to receive notification of replies.....I'm hoping someone can find manifest for Philip (Filippo) to confirm town of birth.
