Help with Grazia Grace Romano Altavilla Palermo

Post by vspeciale66 » 18 Aug 2012, 15:34

I have hit a brick wall with trying to find my Grandmother and her parents in Altvilla Palermo Sicily. Her name was Grazia "Grace" Romano. She was born in 1884-85 and married Pietro Florino at some point in either Altavilla or nearby. They immigrated to the US in 1907.
I am looking for anything that will help. Birth or Marriage or anything else.
I don't know where else to look without going to Italy which is in not an option.

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!!
