Gaetano Papa and Vincenza Frisina in Castiglione di Sicilia

Postby dianea » 24 Feb 2007, 13:44

I am searching for my grandmother's family. She is 101 years old and remembers alot, but she does not remember many names of her extended famiy - grandparents, etc. I want to get info for a family tree to give her.

She is Angeline Papa and was born in 1905 in Castiglione di Sicilia to Gaetano and Vincenza Frisina Papa. They were married in 1892. Vincenza & Gaetano emmigrated to New York in 1916. Gaetano's family had owned land in Grava for several generations and he traveled back and forth from the US to Sicily until he died. I have more information but don't know how to trace back in both the Papa and Frisina families. Can someone help direct me?

Hi! I really can't be of too much help (at 15 I'm a beginer too) but the town you said hit me. My family came from Castiglione Di Sicilia also, if you want you can look over my post about the Savoca and Farfaglia family. I will try and do my best as you and I are looking up things from the same town. I have a favor to ask you, if it is possible, please ask your grandmother about the town she came from. I have had a strong connection to it but have never been there, and all of my family who were there have passed away. I just want to know any info on it at all, I have to get there someday it is a dream of mine! Well you picked a good place to start because it is like a family here, everyone is there for eachother. You might want to try the LDS center which the others cam explain better then I can. I have to the same thing as you do so let me know how you do! Good luck!!

Mike

There is microfilm available from the Family History center that you can order on your town. You would be able to look up birth, death and marriage info on your families...
