Looking for Palazzolo from Licata, Sicily

Postby chrispellegrini » 07 Mar 2007, 18:27

I am looking for any information on the family of my Grandparents. Catherine (Minetiello,?sp) Palazzolo (Born 3/13/1888) married Giuseppe Palazzolo (born 8/25/1984) Licata, Sicily, Italy. I believe they were married in Sicily and came to America seperatly in early 1900's. They came through NY and settled in Rochester, NY.

Also, the Lds has film available for research up to 1910, which should include the marriage of the grandparents. From this you can discover their parents names as well.
