New member from Sicily!

Postby Marcello_DAleo » 18 Jul 2009, 11:36

Hi, everybody!

First of all, sorry if my English is not perfect.

My name is Marcello D'Aleo, 40 years old and I live in Bagheria in the province of Palermo. Since the age of 13 years, I have a passion for genealogy, so I have done my job.

In fact in 1987 I founded the Centro Meridionale Ricerche Genealogiche and I am researcher for some genealogical institutes in Italy and abroad.

I have carried out about 300 searches in Sicily and other regions of Southern Italy.

I hope I can be of help to those who share my passion.

Regards

Marcello D'Aleo

Welcome Marcello
That is very kind of you offering to help others. The more poeple who can give help to others can only be a good thing.
I know what it can be like when you come up against a 'brick wall' and me personally will be forever grateful to all the people on this forum who gave lots of help to me in the past. :D

Welcome Marcello to IG,
we need people like you...

Benvenuto Marcello
stranamente avevo notato che sono pochissimi i siciliani appassionati di genealogia. Su IG almeno adesso siamo in due, almeno credo...

Vincenzo
I'm searching lost relatives and descendant of my greatgrandfather Vincenzo Genualdi (or Gennaldi or Genuardi) and my greatgrandmother Concetta Davola (their sons: Angela, Carmela, Antonio, Bartolomeo, Ernesto, Simone, Riccardo, Maria) went in Chicago,Ill., and New Orleans, in 1880-1920 from Sicily. Other family related : Jacobucci or Jacopucci (from Central Italy).

Caro Marcello oggi ho chiamato la chiesa Mormona in Salt Lake City, Utah e ho parlato con la persona incaricato della storia Europea e ho chiesto do ve si trova i archivi dell'epoca 1300 a Palermo. La signora mi disse che i archivi del 1300 dovrebbero stare nella cattedrale di Maria Santissima Assunta, Via Matteo Bonello, Palermo.

Di piu ce un museo di rimpetto la cattedrale della Diocese di Palermo nel palazzo arcovescoville, via Matteo Bonello 2, 90134 Palermo

La signora della chiesa Mormona ancora mi disse che cerano molti archivi che non era possibile mettere sul microfilm ma pensa che li stanno i archivi del 1300. =Peter=

Caro Peter,
A parte il fatto che conosco quell'archivio da più di vent'anni, esiste un inventario eseguito dieci anni fa dal Prof. Giuseppe Schirò. I più antichi documenti sono dell'anno 1474. Questo inventario è consultabile sia presso il suddetto archivio che presso l'Archivio Storico Diocesano. Inoltre nell'archivio della Cattedrale non esistono registri ancora da inventariare.
Gli archivi delle altre parrocchie palermitane iniziano dagli ultimi anni del Quattrocento - inizi Cinquecento.
Chiesa antica = archivio antico non è la regola!
La signora "pensa" che "dovrebbero"... La sua non è una certezza, ma solo una supposizione.
Comunque, se la mia risposta non ti soddisfa, ti consiglio di contattare il Direttore dell'Archivio Storico Diocesano, Dott. Giovanni Travagliato, o il suo assistente Dott. Marcello Messina. Nella diocesi di Palermo sono i massimi esperti in materia di archivi ecclesiastici. Loro ti daranno tutte le informazioni che desideri e ti confermeranno quanto ti ho già detto.

La signora Mormona mi disse che i archivi del 1350 si trovano nella cattedrale della Maria SS Assunta aparte del museo e mi disse che questi archivi erano molto fragile e la chiesa non vuoleva che erano toccati per mettere sotto la macchina di microfilm. Mi disse che per questa ragione non erano archivato della chiesa Mormona e non vuoleva dire con certezza di che era scritto in quelli documenti del 1300.

Io hio spiegato che ci sono documenti piu giovane che quelli di 1400 come diceva mentre le Mormone dicono esistono indietro a 1300. Io credo a loro e non ho piu cose dirle. Era lei che dice che i archivi cominciano nel 1400 non io. Io non ho bisogno di fare piu ricerche e per lei di fare le ricerche siccome ha fatto una dichiarazione senza autenticazione. =Peter=

Creda pure a chi vuole. Non mi sono iscritto a questo forum per fare sterili polemiche. Ognuno si assuma la responsabilità di quello che scrive, sia veritiero o no. La saluto.

Marcello
Welcome. I am hoping you can be of some help in my research. I am researching my husband's ancestors from Sicily. It would be wonderful to find some living relatives in Sicily or elsewhere who could fill in the blanks and provide more information. I have some but its never enough as you surely know. :-)
The names of the following were from Sicily I believe and came to the U.S.
Basilio SIMONE b: 10 May 1881 d: 14 May 1947
wife: Basilia IRO b: 2 Nov 1888 d: 2 Feb 1952
Basilio's parents are: Giatono SIMONE and Nunzio
Basilia's parents are: Antonio IRO and Concetta SCORZA
Hope to hear from you.
Thank you!
