Mia nonna Maria Mortellaro nacque in Sicilia, Italia, il 16 giugno 1903.
I suoi genitori erano: Rosario Mortellaro e Rosa La Ranta (1867-1933), morti in Sicilia; ebbero altre due figlie.
Avrei bisogno delle seguenti informazioni:
- Luogo di nascita di Maria
- Luogo esatto di residenza della famiglia
- I nomi e le date di nascita delle sorelle di Maria
- Le date di nascita e morte di Rosario, il padre
- Notizie su fratelli o sorelle di Rosa La Ranta e di Rosario Mortellaro.

Allego copia del passaporto di Maria

Grazie,
David

Grandmother:
Maria Mortellaro married Benaim, housewife, daughter of the deceased Rosario and the deceased Rosa Larata, born in Tunisi [Tunisia, North Africa] on June 16, 1903, domiciled in Bivona [Sicily, province of Agrigento] and resident in Casablanca, Morocco.

Her mother
Rosa La Ranta, born May 5, 1867, died May 23, 1933

Note: the passport definitely says Larata instead of La Ranta
