LENTINI family in Marsala, Sicily ???

Postby Jim2814 » 10 Mar 2010, 19:24

I am trying to locate relatives in Marsala Sicily. My grandfather, Vincenzo Lentini, came to the US in 1904 leaving behind a brother Joseph, sister Vita and mother Francesca. We lost contact with them after my grandfather died in 1942.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to the best way to locate any surviving relatives? Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

Thank you.

Dear Jim youmay be inclined to want to write to persons inMarsala whose first names are familiar to your family as well as LENTINI since first names tend to remain in families for generations.

You can send a form letter to a potential relative(s) by going to
www.initaly.com/gene/mem/letter1.htm

Youcan also request documents like Birth, marriage or death records by using form letters often free of charge at

Trying to Trace My Italian Roots - Ressetta Reppia Italy

Postby Ressetta » 06 May 2010, 10:49

I am trying to locate relatives in Reppia, Italy.

My great grandmother Rosa Ressetta married my great grandfather Robert McFarlane in Reppia Italy in August 1883. Does anyone know the name of the church they married in as I am assuming there will only have been one at that time as it is a small mountain village from what I understand!

Does anyone have any suggestions as to the best way to locate any surviving relatives? Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

Thank you.
