Village of Priorato

Postby clijs » 14 Apr 2012, 17:47

Hi,
My great grandfather was born in 1870, in the village of Priorato. The name, Priorato no longer exists and I was wondering if anyone knew where this village was located. I'm sure it was close to Messina. This is very important to my mother and I can't seem to get past my great, great grandfather. I was hoping that church records in the Priorato area would help me. Any help or advise would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you,
Laura

Welcome to the website Laura. Do you have a record with that town on it? Why do you think Messina? I come up with this link in Parma area
http://itouchmap.com/?c=it&UF=-125850&UN=-192519&DG=PPL
City of Fontanellato,Parma Localities
Albareto, Cannetolo, Casalbarbato, Ghiara, Grugno, Parola, Paroletta, Priorato, Toccalmatto
Looks like a area or a section of the City of Fontanellato,Parma
