Re: parents or siblings of Anna pomilla---

Hi, I was looking at your post and noticed the family name Sparacino. My ggm was Sparacino from Ali Superiori, Messina Sicily. Do you have any links to Sparacino, Miceli or D'Angelo. If so please contact me.
thank you,

births

I have noticed that there are quite a few instances where a child is born to couples that are living together and at a later date they are married. Was this common it the 1800's? does it have anything to do with the laws regarding the church vs civil law?

Re: Passenger Arrivals in Italy

If the relative came back to the USA check the USA passenger list and see if they listed the other dates that he entered the USA. Also look at where his last place was in Italy and who he went to see or who he is coming to see in the USA
