Scaffa family help

Postby tonyen826 » 14 Oct 2007, 02:36

Hello Everyone!,

I am looking for any help regarding the Scaffa family who are from the Messina area. As far as first names I know there are Guido Scaffa and Clementina and all their children were born in Messina. I know of their childrens names are Guido and Guiseppe. Any information would be a great help.

Thanks so much for any responses.

Hi Tonyen,

but you're searching for USA records or Italian?
Do you have some dates (births or emigrations....etc..) or do you know the State where they were living?
It seems Scaffa is not a common surname in Italia:

And from this site it seems in Sicilia the Scaffa are from :

Comuni nei quali è presente il cognome "scaffa" : 1 su 390.
2,48 Roccalumera Messina

So maybe, if we have some more dates it will be easy to find something...

Laura :D

I am an American and I am visiting my family in Roma. My Italian cousin (the son of one of the daughters of Guido and Clementina) told me about your posting.

My biological name is Marcus John Scaffa. My mother married one of the sons of Guido and Clementina. His name is Giovanni Natale Scaffa. The marriage did not work out; my mother remarried and now I carry the name of Marcus John Healey.

I come to Italy, usually, once per year to reconnect with my family Scaffa and my other cousins who I rediscovered after many years.

Kind regards,
