As recommended on another thread, I am starting a new post in the hopes of locating my grandfathers birth certificate. Here is what I know for sure:

Vito Spitalieri (this name has been found to be spelt many different ways)
Born: 5/21/1893
From: Per Naturalization record: Catania
Per the ship's manifest: Riposto
married to: Josephine (Guiseppina)
Married on: December 3, 1922 (In New York City)
Naturalized on: May 10, 1934

Together they had three children: Josie, Jennie and Vito

I have also been told that my grandfather and grandmother were first cousins, but I have yet to figure how.

I have checked the towns of Regalbuto, Centuripe, Riposto, Enna and Catania and have come up with nothing....

So if there is any suggestions out there, I would greatly appreciate it..

Thank you all so so much

Gina

Hi...
so Vito Spitalieri married at Giuseppa (Josephine) Bonanno ( she imm. in 1921)
Vito sister: Nunziata (Nancy) Spitalieri married at Angelo Bonanno( brother of Josephine).
The Bonannos coming from Regalbuto. The vito last residence: Regalbuto. Birthplace: Riposto. I checked in Riposto the birth ( feb 1899) of Nunziata( Nancy) Spitalieri and nothing.. I believe that Riposto is no the right birthplace..

Regalbuto more probable...
you searched in Regalbuto births? by LDS microfilms?
suanj

I did not search Regalbuto, I had a gentleman in Sicily research for me and he came up with nothing in Regalbuto. How does one search the LDS microfilm. I did most of my searching on Ancestry.com and familysearch.org and was unable to come up with anything. I couldn't even find his sisters information, I can't believe you found that....Gosh, I hope you can help me.

I also checked - and checked the town of Giarre which is not far from Risposto and there were a few Spitelieri/Spitalieri listed so it's an option. I only checked a few years though - here's the link to the records from Catania familysearch.org/pal:/...%3D2043496

Like suanj, I checked for Nunziata's birth record as well as Vincenza's and found nothing in Riposte, nor did I see any Spitalieri or close variations on the birth indices from 1894 to 1899.

I really appreciate all the help....I wish I understood how to use that site. This man and his family seem to be amongst the missing. I have ordered both my grandfather's death certificate and marriage certificate in the hopes that I will get some more accurate information, but I'm not counting on it. I am trying to establish dual citizenship and I need his birth certificate in order to be able to do so.....Any other recommendations? If you can explain how to read those records, I don't mind going through some of them. When I went to family search, I just typed in the name and many assorted variations, and I couldn't find either Vito or his sisters.

Have you tried ordering the military draft cards from Sicily Archives? Maybe that will help?

all traces seeming that Regalbuto is the birthplace.. the other Vito's sister: Vincenza Spitalieri married at Vito Di Benedetto born on 6 nov. 1888 in Regalbuto...
I am positive abt Regalbuto...

Quote::
I did not search Regalbuto, I had a gentleman in Sicily research for me and he came up with nothing in Regalbuto.

You wrote in Regalbuto asking the Vito birth certificate...?
Just for to know the clerk reply...

Wow....you both have been spot on....I can't believe you were able to find all that information in such a short time and I have been searching for weeks, and found none of that.....Thank you so much....

Nuccia...How do order the military records from Sicily?

Suanj, .....How do I look up the birth records from 1893 (the year my grandfather was born?) Does it say on his sisters records the names of the parents..... The gentlemen DID look in Regalbuto, but said no VITO SPITALIERI was born there....I know my grandfathers sisters were younger than he was, so its possible that his family moved to Regalbuto after my grandfather was born...

I have got to say....I was so discouraged on Monday, and now....I am super excited....THANK YOU....THANK YOU....THANK YOU....

Gina maybe suanj, biff or ricbru can tell us if it's even possible - I am not familiar with the Sicilian Archives addresses much so it was a thought. Glad you're excited - it took me over 5 years to find one of my ancestors but with the help of everyone here it did happen so never give up!

Per the Surname Data base, the name Spitalieri is found in Trabia. Should I check there?
