ITALY: Help with Lercara Friddi, Palermo Ancestors

+10 votes

The goal of this project is to locate ancestors originating in Lercara Friddi, Palermo, Italy.

Right now this project just has one member, me. I am T Ruggiero.

Here are some of the tasks that I think need to be done. I'll be working on them, and could use your help.

  • Identifying ancestors and descendants for those of us with Lercara ancestral roots
  • Finding Lercara church records from the 1700s and the 1800s.
  • Finding a Lercara Friddi-based church and cemetery contact willing to partner with us.
  • Connecting family members to the global family tree.

Will you join me? Please post a comment here on this page, in G2G using the project tag, or send me a private message. Thanks!

Hi Wayne - the family of interest is:

-HUSBAND Pietro Miceli - b: est 1789 d: May 30, 1863 Lercara Friddi  (Pietro's parents were Giuseppe Miceli and Carmela ???)

- WIFE Anna Macaluso - b: est 1789  d: aft May 1863 and bef Jul 1871

They were married before 1817, most likely in Lercara Friddi.


Two of their children - Rosalia and Salvatore, born in 1831 and 1832, respectively are my direct ancestors.  Additional information on them and other siblings of theirs that I've been able to locate are included below.

Tks in advance for any help you might be able to provide!

Rgds, Tina

In the Italy Project we will try to add location categories to all Italian profiles. There already exists a Category for Lercara Friddi, so it would great if you could add it to all profiles of people who ever lived there (or were born, married or died). This will help you to find all profiles of Lercara Friddi in one place:

If you have questions on categories or if you need categories of other towns created, please feel free to message me.
