Am trying to locate where triplet infants from around the turn of the century (1900-1905) may have been buried in Caronia, Messina, Sicily. Can anyone help with names of local cemeteries or church graveyards that I may write to? Also, where would I write for death records from that period? I have their parents names and date of marriage but no other information on the babies.
Thanks for replying. I have those addresses but no more information on the babies other than a funeral photo. I appear to be at a standstill regarding the mother's (my great grandmother) records. I was trying to approach this from another angle. My sister and I have a trip planned for next fall, so we may have to do this in person.
Thanks - we actually have a Family History Center within 1/2 hour of my home. Our schedules are not compatible so I will need to take some time off from work to get there. I was hoping to have some more information to bring there. I will check it out as soon as I can. I've been on their website and found all that I could without "human" guidance. I will check out your links to see if I missed anything.
I have been writing about that area of Sicily and came across a famous church that houses a statue of The Black Madonna in Tindari, Messina. It is located on a hilltop and I'll bet you anything it has a churchyard with graves dating back to that time.
I just don't know who you would contact about names and dates of the deceased. Maybe someone who reads this posting can help...
