I have been going through the records of Polizzi Generosa to update my husbands family tree. I came across a few interesting things.

I am interested in the surname Antista and found:

PG Deaths 1823 (Film # 2035719 #223)
Nantista, Domenico (Father: Bartolomeo Nantista; Mother: Angela Zaffiore)
PG Deaths 1825
Dentista, Gesualdo (Father: Incogniti genitori)
PG Deaths 1826 (Film # 2035719 #103)
Dantista, Teresa (Father: Dantista, Bartolo; Mother: Angela Indoratore)

I am thinking that the 1823 and 1826 might be the same family. These are the earliest records I found with the names similar to Antista. I would appreciate someone translating the above links for me. I am wondering if the surname Antista started out with a D and mayabe an apostrophe. Does anyone have any ideas for me on these records?

Thank you in advance for any help.

Other names I found in my husband's ancestry are: Taravella, Curcio, Pagano, Pantino, Armano, Barranco, Albanese and Valenza. So please let me know if any of these names on are those documents. Thanks agains.

Nantista, Domenico (Father: Bartolomeo Nantista; Mother: Angela Zaffiore)
PG Deaths 1825 this was is a baby 10 days old and Nantista is a surname for that area

Dentista, Gesualdo (Father: Incogniti genitori)looks like his name was given DENTE Gesualdo

Dantista, Teresa (Father: Dantista, Bartolo; Mother: Angela Indoratore)
another baby LOOKS LIKE 6 months?? and 10 days old this one possible d'Antista

Thank you Marty:

I am wondering if the surname Antista was actually D'Antista at one time. Most of my husband's family records I found in Polizzi Generosa. However, I think there might be Antista's from Geraci Siculo. Do you know if there are any ancestry records for Geraci Siculo online? I have not been able to locate from the Polizzi Generosa the birth records for my husbands Great-Great Grandparents.

Thanks again for your help.
