Birth/Baptism and Marriage for Andrea Ventimiglia and Maria Cilluffo

Post by sbiondo257 »

Hello, I'm trying to find birth, marriage, and death records for my 4x great grandarents Andrea Ventimiglia and his wife Maria Grazia Cilluffo. They are most likely from Terrasini in the province of Palermo. The only documents I have that mention them are for their son Giuseppe. I'd also love to know Andrea and Giuseppe's professions if possible. I hope someone can help me with this! Thank you!

The best way to do this is to use the civil registration because it provides ages.

http://dl.antenati.san.beniculturali.it ... ewsIndex=0
Birth record in civil registration - Giuseppe Ventimiglia born 4 Mar 1845 to parents Andrea Ventimiglia, 36, and Maria Cilluffo, 32.

You can now search marriage records in the ~12-15 years before 1845 given the mother's age.

You also know from Giuseppe & Rosa's marriage record that Maria Cilluffo is dead in the range 1845-1869. The other three parents are all still alive by this time.
