Hello,

I am trying to find out more information about my fiance's family. I was able to trace his grandfather's immigration records showing his age as well as where he was and a few family members names but the most I have is a few names of some brothers & his fathers name. Any suggestions on the best way to proceed would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance for any advice.

Welcome Bluevanilla,

What are your goals.....to build his Family Tree? To find ancestors? To find living relatives? There are lots of tools available. If you want to know about early activities in the US. there is info available via the US Census (available at ancestry.com or National Archives [NARA]), as well as draft registrations, etc. Many local libraries have subscriptions to ancestry.com.

It sounds like you have some data from Ellis Island already. If you know where his family originated from in Italy, you can write (in Italian) to the Town Hall to request Birth or Marriage records; you can find the same info via Microfilm from the FHC Family History Center:

www.familysearch.org/e...et_fhc.asp

Let us know some more details and someone will guide you in how to get started.

An excellent way to start would be at the Family Search.org site that is the site of the Mormon Church. It is part of their religion to find the names of every person who ever lived no matter what their ethnicity, race, religion, etc. On that site you can enter various names and also various areas from which you know them came. It is finding a name, wife's name, birth date and often parents' names will be listed. When you do find anything of interest you can then find the closes LDS church nearest you and order films where you can review all the birth certificates, marriage, death, etc. I am Camilla and have done extensive research on Sicily, Naso, Province of Messina. Ciao. Let me know
