Re: Immigrant Name Changes

In our family the names were changed accordingly: Nataluccio/Natale Is that a surname? Natalucci is a common surname, but Nataluccio is not found in Italy now. Natale is already an Italian given name. Valleverdina/Dina Wow, that is rare! Guiseppe/Joseph It's Giuseppe. Evelyn/Eve Evelyn is English, ...

Re: Brazilian looking for his great-great-grandfather

FWIW, here is your GGF Stefano Sciangula in my tree. Vincenz Zirafa and Caterina Mattana may have died in San Biagio Platani, as that's where their younger daughter Giuseppa was born and died. Giuseppe Moscato may have been from Canicatti. The leaf that you can see attached to him is a hint to the t...

Re: Baiamonte death record

You asked if there was any other pertinent information. You seem to be reading it pretty well already, so you probably noticed this, but for all 3 people named in the record their (deceased) fathers' names are also given. FWIW, I agree with Erudita that it looks like Burdellanti (or Burdellenti). Th...

Re: Translation of Angelinas Birth Certicate

Yes, i've confirmed her 3rd marriage. Here is the marriage record from Cammarata from 1918 for the marriage of Giuseppe Tagliarini and Concetta Di Marco:

Re: Translation of Angelinas Birth Certicate

I haven't seen this mentioned upthread, so I'll ask: Did Concetta Di Marco marry to Giuseppe Tagliarini, the brother of Francesco Tagliarini, after her 2nd husband Salvatore Sorce died (in 1916)? Here's a passenger manifest from 1919 showing Concetta traveling with Giuseppe and her children Angela D...

Ok, I was just looking at the tree in the original post, which did not show them.
No problem. I appreciate your taking the time to look up those records, but I feel bad because they had already been found

Re: Italian using two last names from Agrigento / Maurici-Lino

Depending where this info came from, like the familysearch site. It looks to me like Maurici was married to a Lino. That site always adds Mothers name last. My ancestors read Eliseo Catuosco Grosso. His mothers name is Grosso. The information came from images of the actual civil records, not just a...

Re: Italian using two last names from Agrigento / Maurici-Lino

So much for the theory that Ciro Maurici Lino's parents were Salvadore Lino Trono and Ignazia Maurici from Bivona: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3QSQ-G94S-TS6S?i=2324&wc=MC5G-GWL%3A349457201%2C349457202%2C954413201&cc=2043548&cat=529842 According to his death record his parents were Ig...

Re: Italian using two last names from Agrigento / Maurici-Lino

Well, I've found the 1856 marriage record of Filippo Maurici and Biagia Lo Scalzo, so at least I was able to confirm his parents. It seems that his father Ciro was still alive then and I haven't found his death record up until 1861 either, so it is necessary to look through the death records on fami...

Re: Looking for marriage of Maria rosa Sabella and Francesco Valenti

I'd look for the death records of Francesco Valenti and Maria Sabella, and for other children of them. At this point the evidence is too weak to conclude that we've found their birth records. They may not even have been from Alessandria - their surnames are common in nearby towns, too. Unfortunately...

Re: Looking for birth record - Ignazio Maurici Lino - Agrigento

I wasn't proposing that the 2nd birth record was his, but rather just showing another record where the name was spelled solid. In numerous other records it is Maurici Lino, a combination of 2 names (or just one of them); these 2 are the exceptions. The date of birth for Ignazio was clearly the 27th,...

Here is another where the surname is Mauricilino: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903 ... cat=529842

Re: Giovanna Fauci / Antonino Bellitti

Here is Vincenza "Jennie" Bellitti in my tree. It includes the marriage records of her parents and grandparents and goes back to her 3rd and sometimes 4th great-grandparents. Her grandfather Pellegrino Bellitto was a foundling so you're probably not going to be able to go further back for him. https...
