Gaetano La Barbera
Via D XII, 8
90011 Bagheria (PA)
Italy


Ciao,
My name is John La Barbera.
Il mio nome e' John La Barbera.

I live in Houston, Texas USA.
Abito a Houston, Texas STATI UNITI.

My great grandfather Gaetano La Barbera, was born in Bagheria and migrated to the USA in 1897.
Mio bisnonno si chiamava Gaetano La Barbera , e' nato a Bagheria ed emigrato negli Stati Uniti nel 1897.

I am trying to contact my relatives still living in Bagheria.
Vorrei mettermi in contatto con qualche mio parente ancora residente a Bagheria.

I do not know which of the La Barberas living in Bagheria are related to me.
Non saprei dire se sono imparentato con qualcuno che porta il cognome La Barbera residente a Bagheria.

I am writing to those La Barberas with the same given name as my great grandfather, his brothers or sisters, and also my great great grandfather and great great great grandfather.


My great-grandfather, Gaetano La Barbera, was born about 1874 in Bagheria.
My great uncles were Giovanni, born about 1877, and Antonio/Antonino, born about 1881.
My great aunts are Agnese, born about 1880, and Giuseppa, born about 1878.
My great aunt Giuseppa married Giuseppe D’Amato, born about 1873, in Bagheria on 27 Sep 1903.
I do not know who my great aunt Agnese married, and would like to find out.
My great great grandparents, the father and mother of Gaetano, are Giovanni La Barbera, born in Bagheria about 1843, and Sebastiana Gargano, born in Bagheria about 1851. I believe Giovanni had a brother named Antonino, born about 1846, and a sister named Iganzia born about 1839.
I believe my great great great grandparents were Gaetano La Barbera, born about 1796 and Giuseppa Russo born about 1800. I do not know for sure what town they were born in.

If you think we may be related I would be very grateful to receive a letter or email from you.
Qualora Lei ritenga che possiamo essere imparentati, Le sarei grato se vorra rispondere a questa lettera.

If we are not related but you know of a La Barbera, Gargano, D’Amato or Russo that may be related to me please give this letter to them.

Voglia gradire i miei sinceri saluti.
Accept my sincere greetings.

John La Barbera

Ciao,
My name is John La Barbera.
Il mio nome é John La Barbera.

I live in Houston, Texas USA.
Abito a Houston, Texas negli STATI UNITI.

My great grandfather Gaetano La Barbera, was born in Bagheria and migrated to the USA in 1897.
I am trying to contact my relatives still living in Bagheria.

Il mio bisnonno si chiamava Gaetano La Barbera ed é nato a Bagheria, ha emigrato negli Stati Uniti nel 1897 e vorrei mettermi in contatto con qualche mio parente ancora residente a Bagheria.

I am doing family history research since I am interested in where my ancestors came from and I want to learn more about my heritage. I also plan to tour Sicily one day to see the country and meet the people. I think it would be interesting and fun to meet living relatives.

Sto facendo delle ricerche storiche sia che sono interessato in sapere da dove provengono i miei antenati e vorrei imaparare un po di piu del mio patrimonio.

Proggetto anche visitare la Sicilia cualche giorno per vedere il paese a conoscere la gente. Credo che sará interessante e gradevole conoscere parenti ancora vivi.

I do not know which of the La Barberas living in Bagheria are related to me.
Non saprei dire se sono imparentato con qualcuno che porta il cognome La Barbera residente a Bagheria.

I am writing to those La Barberas with the same given name as my great grandfather, his brothers or sisters, and also my great great grandfather and great great great grandfather.


Sto scrivendo a tutti y La Barbera con lo stesso nome del mio bisnonno, dei suoi fratelli e sorelle, ed anche del mio trisavolo

My great-grandfather, Gaetano La Barbera, was born 1874 in Bagheria.

Il mio bisnonno era Gaetano La Barbera, nato a Baghería nel 1847.


My great uncles were Giovanni, born about 1877, and Antonio/Antonino, born about 1881.

I miei prozii erano Giovanni, nato verso il 1877 e Antonio / Antonino, nato verso 1881


My great aunts are Agnese, born about 1880, and Giuseppa, born about 1878.

Le mie prozie erano Agnese, nata verso 1880 e Giuseppa nata verso 1878


My great aunt Giuseppa married Giuseppe D'Amato, born about 1873, in Bagheria on 27 Sep 1903.

La mia prozia Giuseppa si é sposata a Baghería il 27 Settembre 1903 con Giuseppe DÁmato (nato verso il 1873)


I do not know who my great aunt Agnese married, and would like to find out.

Io non so con chi si é sposata la mia prozia Agnese e mi piacerebbe molto saperlo.


My great great grandparents, the father and mother of Gaetano, are Giovanni La Barbera, born in Bagheria about 1843, and Sebastiana Gargano, born in Bagheria about 1851. I believe Giovanni had a brother named Antonino, born about 1846, and a sister named Iganzia born about 1839.

I miei bisnonni , il padre e la mamma di Gaetano, erano Givanni La Barbera, nato a Baghería verso il 1843 e Sebastiana Gargano, nata a Baghería verso 1851.

Io credo che Giovanni avesse un fratello di nome Antonino, nato verso il 1846 e una sorella chiamata Ignazianata verso 1839.


I believe my great great great grandparents were Gaetano La Barbera, born about 1796 and Giuseppa Russo born about 1800. I do not know for sure what town they were born in.

I do know I made a mistake on the following:
great great grandparents/father = trisavoli/o
great great great grandparents/father = quadrisavali/o

Giovanni/Sebastiana are my "trisavoli"

Gaetano/Giuseppa Russo are my "quadrisavali"

Right?

Grazie!
