Looking for information on my grandfathers family. Grandfather was Giuseppe DiBlasi, his parents were Francesco DiBlasi and Concetta Florio, his sisters were Giacoma and Antonino, he had a brother named Salvatore.
My grandfather so was a Giuseppe Di Blisi di Licata (1893-1982). He was the son of Angelo (1850-1919) and Maria Lo Sclazo, son of Antonino (1812-1857) and Angela Maria Brucculeri,son of Angelo (1776-1842) and Angela Lombardo, son of Mario (c. 1740) and Angela Di Rosa, son of Paolo (c. 1710) and Antonia Mililli.
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.
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?
