Re: Puma Family from Racalmuto in Agrigento, Sicily

I had a first cousin Thomas Craig Puma born January 12, 1956 and died February 28, 2011. He was married to Donna Faye Jones and they had a son Nicholas Craig Puma born January 31, 1984 whom I've never met. Is that you?

Yes. However, if a paid subscriber contacts you, then you can reply back to them even though you are an unpaid subscriber.

Re: Same Bride and Groom - Different Parents

Not only the groom's mother's maiden name is different, but also the bride's mother's maiden name is different.

The town is Racalmuto in Agrigento, Sicily. Unfortunately, the civil records for the year 1848 are missing.

Same Bride and Groom - Different Parents

I have two church records for the marriage of Angela di Puma and Francesco Lo Sardo that are only one day apart. In both cases, the fathers have the same names, but the mothers have different names. That seems very unusual. Are they really the same marriage, not two different marriages? See the link...

Re: Atti di morti del 1861 a Racalmuto (AG)

Racalmuto has no birth, marriage, nor death certificates for the years 1847-1850 and 1861-1862. Apparently, they have been lost over time.

Racalmuto non ha certificati di nascita, matrimonio o morte per gli anni 1847-1850 e 1861-1862. A quanto pare, sono andati persi nel tempo.
