My grandfather was born in Italy. We cannot read the city on the cetficiate we have. It starts out Nica...tlo. I thought it might be in Sicily but I'm not sure. Does anyone know what city or town this might be?

thank you

If you post the certificate we can try to decipher the town name.

I don't have a copy anymore. we always thought he was from Southern Sicily. He last name was Filino. Not sure if that is the correct spelling.

Thanks

I know that in Nicastro ( Catanzaro, Calabria, IT) are the surname FELINO... it is possible that the original surname spelling was Felino and not Felino? you can say us the full name and more details?
