Where would young lovers from Cefalu have gone?...

Post by VotM » 07 Feb 2015, 01:03

OK, the subject line is a bit facetious, but there's a serious question behind it.

Two of my four great-grandfathers were born in Cefalu, and married relatively young; the couples' ages were 24/18 in one case and (presumably) no more than 23/23 in the other. Both had several children in Italy before coming to the U.S.

In the first case, I can find both great-grandparents birth records in Cefalu, the marriage record, and birth records for two of their children, but the trail runs cold years before the family came over to the U.S. -- years in which several other children of theirs were reportedly born in Italy.

In the second case, I can find the birth record for my great-grandfather in Cefalu. But I can't find either a wedding record or a record of the children's births that the census says took place in Italy.

So... is anyone aware of a part of Sicily where young families from Cefalu might have resided while waiting for someone to sponsor them for immigration? Has anyone else encountered this?

Thanks in advance!

If all this happened after 1905 I suggest you write to Cefalu for a Stato di famiglia.

As near as I can tell, all of this happened before 1905: mostly between 1900 and 1904.
