ggmothers death

Post by frankcsr » 12 Feb 2015, 22:12

I am going to Sicily in May and I would like to find where my gg mother is buried in Massa Santa Lucia, Messina Sicily. This is what I know,
Her name is: Maria Calapia
Born: 1864
parents: Giovanni Calapia and Giuseppa Miloni
She married Gaetano Costa in May 29, 1859
Their daughter my g mother Maria Calapia was born 1864 and married Francesco Crisafulli in 1913 in Massa Santa Lucia, Sicily.
I was told when I was young that she was around100 years old when she died so that says she would have died around 1964
Is there any death record that will tell me where and in what cemetery she is buried in?
Any help and information would be appreciated.
Thank you,
Frank Crisafulli

You might want to read my piece on cemeteries on my website before you pursue this further. The town office will know which cemetery she may be in (if the grave still exists). There is often an office in the cemetery which will have details of the location of the grave.
