Can somebody do me a favor please?

Postby jennci » 15 May 2008, 03:16

I don't know any italian and would like to post a message on www.tuttogenealogia.it Everybody was a huge help yesterday with info but I still can't seem to find the correct spelling of my great grandfathers name. Anyways if someone can help this is the info I have: Pietro Sannizzaro born in Guidomandri on 11/3/1884, mother's name ?Nunzia, had brother Biagio, married Giuseppina Cardilli (sp?), moved to US in 1912. Plenty of records in US but none in Italy spelling last name that way???

Thanks, Jenn

I found an Ellis Island record for a Pietro Sannizzaro arriving 6/26/1912 , other listings from Guidomandi , Italy spelled Sannizzero....However , when I search Italian Surname Distribution maps , I can't find any listings for Sannizzaro or Sannizzero....Cannizzaro does show up....I also found a Biagio Cannizzaro arriving 2/12/1902 , age 12....This might be a connection....

Hi Jenn,

possible the right of Pietro's surname was Sannasardo....
If you try to put this last name in this site you can find that it's not very common but there many Sannasardo in Sicily, even if not in the Messina area.... :?

There are Sannazzaro but in the North of Italy and a few in Campania Region.... :?
I think Giuseppina's last name was Cardile, it's pretty common in Sicily...
Try this one:

Put it in English. Many Italians speak it. That is what I did.

Jenn,

why don't you try to order the LDS Births Microfilm about Guidomadri at you nearest Family History center and search for Pietr's birth act...
It can be easy, as you know his exact birth date... :wink:

Try this link to the microfilms:

Hi Laura,
I do have a center close to me and was planning on going next week. Maybe you know.....are ALL the records available at each center the same ones that I could order?
