Surname Sieni

Postby andre_sa » 05 Jul 2007, 07:26

My family surname is Sieni and i am trying to get some family history. We believe my great great grandfather, Antonio Sieni was born in Pace, Messina in Sicily and he emigrated to South Africa. We have tried tracing his birth certificate, but have had no luck in getting it. If anyone knows any Sieni's, or may be of any help it would be greatly appreciated.

We believe he was born in August 1865, but not 100% sure, and he was a sailmaker. He was married to Cecilia Helena Tallie, born 23 Feb 1871, and they came to South Africa by ship between 1890 and 1900. We have written to the state archives of Messina, who have no record of Antonio Sieni born in 1865. We then asked an investigator who got the Pace records checked between 1860 and 1875 of which no records were found of his birth. I understand that he would have needed a seamans document to go to sea, anywhere i am able to trace them ?
