Looking for Information of Pinnola Family

Post by italian059 » 26 Apr 2019, 17:08

I recently learned that my husband is related to the Pinnola Family. It looks like his great grandmother was married twice. I found a death certificate and burial information on Find a Grave of an Angelo Pinnola. There are conflicting birth dates on these records. They both say he was born in Palermo. Not sure how to find an actual birth record although I did do some research but came up with nothing. I am attaching both records. Can anyone locate his actual birth record from Sicily? I am at a loss. Getting closer to finding the origin of his great grandparents. Any info or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Grazie,
M

Mezlominso? Possible Mezzojuso?

Guessing the town was Mezzojuso, I checked if Familysearch had any records online which they did. Basic extraction is what I posted above. I checked for Salvatore and Francesca's marriage information but did not find it although marriages as well as all vital records for 1883 in Mezzojuso are missing.

Thanks Tessa and so sorry Biff. I was looking on my phone and it is so hard to read. Missed it entirely. Was in a big rush. Really appreciate both of your help.

I have one more question. I have been trying to find out where Frances Farina's family came from for many years. I didn't know she was married to a Pinnola. I would imagine Salvador Pinnola died not long after Angelo was born. Frances remarried Francesco Oddo in Sicily and then migrated to Louisiana. Their first child was born around 1890-1891 in Louisiana. I looked through the records from Mezzojuso where Angelo was born to see if I could find a marriage between Francesca Farina and Francesco Oddo. Not sure if I missed anything. Very hard to read through all those records. Can anyone check to see if there is any record like that.
Really appreciate everyone's help.

I could not find a death act for Salvatore Pinnola in that time frame nor a marriage of Francesca to Francesco Oddo. Note her name on Angelo's birth act is Ferina not Farina.
Did Angelo Pinnola come with his mother Francesca and stepfather to the US to also live in New Orleans?

Thanks so much. I doubt if that is where they were from. The earliest census I found for them was 1910. He is not listed on there. He was probably on his own by then. I found his name on one of Frank and Frances’ children’s obituary. The search continues. Thanks again for your help.
