Subject: Re: [{ITA-SICILY-L}] ancestors from Porto Empedocle


My Marullo ancestors are from Porto Empedocle, Provincia, Agrigento which is on the southern coast of the island of Sicily. In my research I found many Marullo's in this town, the Marullo's for the most part were marinari (seamen).  My research was done via FHC microfilm from Porto Empedocle, 5 reels, from 1835 thru 1865, the primary person I was looking for in the Marullo's was my maternal gr-grandmother Concetta Marullo. This was a problem as between 1860-1865 there were five Concetta Marullo's born in this town, three of which died as infants or before their second birthday. The only way I could verify which of the remaining two was the correct one was by obtaining various other documents such as my grandmothers birth and marriage documents and my gr-grandmothers death document which gave her exact age and death date which pointed me to the correct person.  She was born 11 Oct 1865 her father was Gerlando born in 1837.
