Sciattara from Milazzo

Postby drmillhous » 21 Feb 2007, 18:28

Hi,
I am researching my family and have hit a wall. The earliest documents I have are naturalization records. I am looking for Antonino (Antonio) Sciattara (b. Nov 1864) from Milazzo, Sicily. His father was Giovanni. He married Guiseppe (Josephine) Composto, also born in Milazzo. I tried accessing microfilms from Milazzo, but can't read the Italian/Latin. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!
Pat

Were you looking for US records or Italian? If you are looking for Italian records then microfilms or writing away for the info is the only way to go I'm afraid..unless of course someone has already done research on your family. As for reading the older Italian records..join the club! They aren't fun at first, are they? You get kind of used to them after a while but it does take patience.

Try this website for standard translations of the Acts...as long as you can make out the names you're good to go. And a tip...try looking over the indexes before searching through the records for anything that contains your surname..it does save some time.

Hi Pat,

I can't read Italian/Latin, but with the help of an Italian-English genealogical word list, I muddle through & got family back to the early/mid 1700's.

Word lists:

http://www.familysearch.org/Eng/Search/ ... Italia.ASP


http://www.familysearch.org/Eng/Search/ ... LLatin.ASP

Hope they help.

Would anyone have a suggestion on how to contact the records center that is in Milazzo? Would they respond to a records request?
