I have an old document which I think is a marriage contract between my material grandparents. The back of the document has a stamp from Messina but I can't find a date. I scan...

Re: Information on Guiseppe Griffo or Crifo

Yes, this is my grandfather. He did live in Parsippany, NJ. Still can't find a record of his coming to America. Thank you again, for all your help with the translation and information. I am working on a family tree and this helps me so much.

Re: Information on Guiseppe Griffo or Crifo

I do know he had a brother Anthony and I believe there is a Pietro, too. I don't know if Pietro is a brother, cousin or maybe his father.

Marty

What information do you have. The link says "forbidden" and there is nothing there. I assume he was from Patti Sicily because that is were my grandmother and greatgrandmother were from, however, he could be from a different area of Sicily. He resided in Hoboken, NJ.

Re: Looking for information about family from Patti, Sicily

Wow! I can't believe all this information you gave me. Thank you very much. Is it possible to find out if Rosario Incognito was actually gored by a bull in Patti Sicily. It looks like Carmela was a widow. Maybe this story my Mom told me is true. Thanks again.
