My records show your Giuseppe DiBlasi was born on 12 Nov 1893, I also have most of your tree in my file.

 Thank you for your reply, I know that we must be cousins. 

When did you or your ancester move to France?

Hello

in fact, my grandfather was born the 11 november : its birthday was the same day that the end of the war : I'm certain for that  since I was over twenty when he died and very close to him. He move to France a first time after the war, then he come back to Sicily, then in Tunisia and in France in 1961 or so.

He said to me that he saw a impressive genealogy of his ancestors when he was a child. At my request his sister who was then living in Licata makes some search about it but all papers were by then transferred to the Archivio di Stato.

Yes, it is easy to be one day off on the actual birth.  I used the micro-film from the LDS (Mormon Church) to research my DiBlasi Family.

 

Why didn't your Grandfather stay in Licata?  Did he marry an Italian or French woman?

Hello I spoke with my mother today: after the war my grandfather went first in France and then in Tunisia to find a job. There, he was hosted by his maternal uncle and … married the daughter of this uncle, his first cousin. Eventually, he come in France where my mother was living after her marriage : … so I’m French.

Did you find the family ties between my grandfather and your grandfather?
