Stefanese, Steffinnii, Stefin Family

Post by amie78 » 02 Nov 2016, 14:52

I am looking for any information on this family surname. My great grandfather was Sylvester or Sylvestri Stefanese or Steffininni, later Stefin in Pensylvannia USA. I know he immigrated here from Campofranco, Caltanissetta, Italy. Somewhere in the early 1900 or late 1800's. Any information where I can go to find birth records for Italy or anything on this surname I would be eternally grateful.

Wow..My father was born in Campofranco. I know members of the Stefanese family, from there. The ones I know migrated to the Bronx. These people were very close to my family. They were lifelong friends, going back generations...christening each others children, etc. I believe the man's first name was Isadore, probably born in the early 1900s

Family search has the records for this town. 1866-1910

If you want to contact me in email you can. Put Campofranco in the title of the email so I dont miss it.

I have located a birth act in Campofranco for Silvestre Stifanese in 1899.
Possibly your relative?
#28
Dated 11 March 1899 at the town office...
Appearing before the official was Francesco Stifanese, 31, farmer residing in Campofranco, to declare that at 9:15 PM on the 9th of the current month, at the house in Via S. Francesco, to Maria Varagona, 28, spinner, his legitimate wife residing with him, was born a male child who was presented to the official and to whom was given the name SILVESTRE.
