Re: Translation of US birth & marriage certificate

Anna - Both forum members billiedekid mentioned are accredited by the Italian conlsulate and do this frequently. Their translations would be accepted by the government for citizenship if that is what you were seeking. My understanding is your husband's passport is being help up for such translations...

Re: Napolitano

Just in case the names are familiar I will post the information below: Surname Napolitano Name Nunzio Age 36 Relationship Só Occupation Place of last res...

Re: Napolitano

Naples is a huge seaport, city and Province. There are a lot of comunes (towns) there and many of the people who left Italy, left from Naples. Napolitano is a very common name there. You can try writing the Stato Civile offices in Naples and request a copia intergrale of the marriage act. (atti di m...

Re: Catanzaro/Ruffo

This where it gets dicey. I know for certain that their children were born in Palermo. Where exactly they lived, I don't know for certain, but the logical assumption would be Palermo as of the early 1860's. I haven't heard of Tropea before, but that doesn't mean it isn't useful. If I'm not mistaken...

Re: Catanzaro/Ruffo

If you are trying to locate a record of their existence in Palermo prior to 1871 but do you mean Palermo as their place of origin or as a temporary place of residence coming into Palermo from another area?

Re: Catanzaro/Ruffo

Does Tropea (formerly Catanzaro Province) mean anything to you? There was a noble family of Ruffo's there. Many of the noble families of Tropea had roots or summer homes in Sicily. My own family had a summer home in Sicily somewhere that I am still searching for. Our family story says they came from...
