    Looking for any information from my great grandparents. Both came from Casteltermini to the US. Last names are Castelli (Now Costello in U.S.) and Tomasino. Both came to the U.S. as kids around 1913. I have all their information from Ellis Island, but would like to find out about current relatives in Casteltermini. I want to visit them!

    Hello,
    I am searching for any records of My grandfather’s mother. I seem to be able to find record of her birth, and her parents, but cannot find records of her marriage or children’s births.
    Her name is Teresa Burgio, born 1859 and died 1925 in Casteltermini. Her husband was Giovanni Burgio, born 1852 and died 1926 also in Casteltermini.
    Any help would be much appreciated! I can read Italian, so any records would be fine.
