Re: Brooklyn

Dear Lettie,

Your post is somewhat lost here. It is better to start a brand new thread for this topic, that way it will get more focused attention.

Re: Palermo birth records

Robert, I believe that uf1 is an abbreviation of Ufficio #1; ufficio = office. My knowledge of Palermo geography/genealogy is limited, but I think that there were several offices in Palermo's core; so, in a sense it is a geographic location. Perhaps if you post a specific record or search it will be...

Re: Graziano troubles in Palermo

MMogno I just realized that I had left this thread hanging, so let me go for some degree of closure. I had already scoured the Palermo records for the Graziano lineages, including the 3 marriages you refer to here. I now interpret your suggestion (which is appreciated) as a nudge to go to the Proces...

Re: Palermo records

There have indeed been threads discussing and making available Tornabene's work (including notice of his 2016 death, a great loss). While his original source material (the indexes) is all available from the Antenati site, he processed and enhanced the Palermo marriage indexes into Excel files, which...

Re: read and print a document

Perhaps these images will help; I hope I got the linkages right, I'll check one when the post goes up. They vary in legibility, I've seen worse! Was there another doc? I'd rather avoid doing an entire allegati. Image availability to examine on a screen is not the same as for printing; I can't help m...

Seek assistance translating English to Italian

Hello, I hope to send a message to the scholar Orazio Cancila, who is from my ancestors' home town of Castelbuono. This is a first contact for him. Thank you very much!! Here is my message: Professor Cancila,   Please forgive that I do not know the Italian language, and must rely on translations of ...

Re: Help? I cannot find naturalization documents!

I have a few deceased relatives whose naturalization documents I would likewise hope to locate. They are reported in the census to have been naturalized. I think that it is possible that some immigrants, especially those not fluent in English, may have mistakenly believed that they had become citize...

Re: I'm stuck in Argentina - Finding relatives

This story is fascinating and presented so well. But sad because hope for a resolution seems small. I am restricted to English, but I use the Google translator, and while this causes some translation amusements, the details of the story can be understood. I started following because I saw the topic ...

Re: Surname

In order to search it might be helpful to also know the first name(s), if you know any.

Again, looking through Erudita's links, and if the last name is Mossucca:
