Gaetano Merendino & Antonina Argusa Married 26 June 1880

Postby jocinderella » 20 Jan 2008, 04:20

We are looking to find more information about our heritage.

Commune of Carini
Province of Palermo

Gaetano Merendino was the son of Gaspare Merendino & Antonia Baiada.

Antonina Agrusa was the daughter of Giovanni Agrusa & Giuseppa Lucido.


Gaetano Merendino & Antonina Agrusa were married 26 June 1880.


One of their sons was my great grandfather Giovanni Merendino born 6 November 1891. Giovanni came to America when he was 14 years old.

My mother remembers her father Giovanni Merendino telling her his parents had or lived on a lemon plantation.


My mother and my aunts remember during WWII my great grandfather (Giovanni Merendino) received a message that the Germans had raided their home and his mother Antonina Merendino was stabbed and killed by a German Solider.


Anyone with information of this family please e-mail jocinderella@comcast.net

Thank You Wldspirit for posting the link to my website!

jocinderella, if you are interested in researching your family ancestry, definitely have a look at this page:

Carini Exchange Resources

You will find the original Church record images of Baptisms (1881-1905) and Marriages (1568-1905) there are no gaps, everything is there.

If you are looking to locate currently living relatives, please join and post a message to one of my two Carini Genealogy forums linked from here:

Carini Exchange Forums

I would be more than happy to help you interpret the records, a great portion of which have been extracted into Excel already here:

Carini Exchange Extractions

Let me know!

Having looked quickly through my database I see we share (at least one) common ancestry, and that is we both descend from Vincenzo Giacomo Baiada who married Vincenza Rubbino 20 January 1737. Our first Traceable Baiada ancestor is Michele Baiata who married 1571 Filippa Lo Cilio.

Here is the complete Carini ancestry of Gaetano Merendino who married 1880 Antonina Agrusa generated from my database:

You are very welcome, it's always great to find another Carini researcher, it's the reason I started my website!!

To save time, here is a GEDCOM (which you can import into nearly any Genealogy Program) of the ancestors of Giovanni Merendino, son of Gaetano Merendino & Antonina Agrusa. This way you won't have to key in anything, just import:

Hey Jo, somehow I missed your followup.

The Agrusa family came to Carini from nearby Cinisi around 1850.

I have uploaded a PDF and GEDCOM file of Antonina Agrusa's ancestry here:

Agrusa Files

As far as details of her life and unfortunate death, perhaps someone on this forum from Italy could direct you to the correct Agency to find out more details. You can request a copy of her death even if you are unsure of the date (which usually will not list cause of death but would give you something) by sending a request via this Website:

I know for certain Carini does reply with records when the form is filled out and sent to the town by these wonderful people. A member of our Carini forum just last week received documents via email from The Stato Civile.
