    I have been trying very hard to get some information about my Grandfather’s gravesite. He came to America in 1913 and returned to his homeland after my grandmother died and after raising 9 children together. All his children are gone now, including my dad who was the youngest. There is nobody who can give us more details and direction as to his burial place. I do know that my Aunt Annie, his daughter, visited the site about 40 years ago, but we don’t know where it is located.
    These are the clues I have. His prayer card when he died that was sent to his children from Italy said that he was born in Polveraia on March 15, 1885 and died on May 17, 1958 in Rosignano Solvay. I also know that he grew up in Scancano , married my grandmother who lived in Randazzo, Sicily on November 28, 1908, at age 23, and then came to to America October 22, 1913 at age 28. So, probably his first 23 years of life were spent in Scansano and possibly his last 5 years of life after Grandma died.
    An interesting fact about my grandfather is that he was studying for the priesthood before he went to Sicily and met my grandmother. I am hoping there are records in the diocese to verify this information as well as to locate his final resting place. My husband and I will be going to Italy for the first time in September and want so much to see his birth town, neighborhood,his church, and his gravesite. Is it possible for you to locate some information about him for us or to lead us in the direction of finding it in another location?
    I know he died in Rosignano Solvay but have no idea whether he lived there or was vacationing there at the time. It makes me think that he very possibly could be buried in the place of his birth, Polveraia , Scansano.
    My grandfather’s name was: Angelo Arturo Adolfo Sbrilli
    Born: March 3, 1885 Poleraia
    Died: May 17,1958. Rosignano Solvay
