Sciacca, Sicily

Postby jscaduto » 22 Jun 2007, 16:51

I am going to Sicily this year. I would like to do some family research while there. I know for a fact that my grandparents were born in Sciacca. I have a copy of my grandmothers birth certificate and Sciacca is listed as birthplace on grandfathers Military records. I also have copies of ship manifests/census that list sciacca a their birth place.
Ignazio (John) Scaduto dob 3/3/93 mothers maiden name Lauro
Cologero (Lena) Amplo/ampolo 1902. Mothers maiden name Imbarnone.
Has anyoe done any research in Sicily? Does one have to let the local city/town hall know that you coming? I will have approx 2 weeks to do research. Any information will be appreciated.

I'd recommend that you write the mayor (sindaco) ahead of time for permission to do research. Here's an interactive form letter you can use.

Letter to Sindaco

"To dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free, silhouetted by the sea, circled by the circus sands"
