Great Grandfather's Place of Birth

Post by dmolkentin » 18 Apr 2008, 15:58

Hello All,

I'm in search of my great grandfather's birthplace. I have his date of birth and parents' names but no one in my family knows the town where he was born; only that he was born in Sicily. I did a search and found there are 30 some odd locations in Sicily where my great grandfather's last name, "Bilello," appears. How do I go about finding more exact information? Thank you for your help.

Warm Regards,

Hi Daniel and Welcome to the Forum!
Depending upon your g-grandfather's date of birth and
year of immigration, sometimes a birth location can
be found on his ship manifest & US military records.
If you give us a bit more information, we can help
you look.
