I am looking for information on my great grandmother and her family. Madeline Bruscemi (Maddalena) was born on May 13, 1878 in Lascari, Sicily. Her father was Francesco Bruscemi and her mother was Teresa Di Leonardo Bruscemi. Can anyone help me find any records for the Bruscemi and Di Leonardo families
More information: Francesco Bruscemi married Teresa Di Leonardo. They had 5 children: • Gaetano Bruscemi who married Giuseppina Seria • Maria Bruscemi who married Pietro Corsello • Maddalena Bruscemi who married Francesco Roviglia (Rovilea) (my great grandfather) o Maddalena Bruscemi Roviglia • Lived in Campofelice in the Province of Palermo after marriage • received a passport in Cefalu on Dec. 30, 1904 • Arrived in New York on Jan 20, 1905 on the ship Konig Albert with first born daughter Luisa Roviglia (b. July 18, 1903) • Salvatore Bruscemi who married Rosa Cesare • Francesco Bruscemi who married Guiseppina Verca[/list]
Welcome to the website. If your sure thats where they came from there are films for rent from Family History Library for Lascari (Palermo), 1820-1913 Births, deaths, marriages, marriage banns, records of citizenship, and documents attached to records from the civil registration office of Lascari (Palermo). Some registries include an index. Text in Italian.
We are related! Do you know anything about the di Leonardo side? Or the Navarro side?
Your grandfather is my great, great grandfather (I think). There are so many people with the same name in the family. Is this the Francesco Bruscemi who was married to Teresa di Leonardo and also Tura Verca (thats the name I have from my grandmother's records). They had at least one child together named Vincenzo.?
