Photo of Little Boy from Patti

Post by ItalianbellaSA » 05 Feb 2011, 16:10

This photo is a relative from Patti, Sicily that I found in my mother's posessions. I would like to have the back of the photo transcribed so I maybe can figure out who this little boy is.

Back of photo is dated March 19, 1952

And looks to read...

"Questa se la tiene per ricordo di suo nipotino Francuccio (sp?) Crifo"

"This is in memory of her/his grandson/nephew Francuccio (doesn't look like Francesco - but could be an affectionate version of it) Crifo."

You can keep this as a memory of your grandson/nephew Francuccio Crifò

Francuccio stands for little Franco

It is hoped that the research I am doing helps to discover, preserve and celebrate my family history.
