Digitization of San Nicola di Bari, Termini Imerese, church records
Hello family search historians, I have been putting consistent pressure on both the Archdiocese of Palermo and the local priest at San Nicola di Bari to release the church records for digitization to family search. Because of your efforts, I have been able to take the family tree on my paternal grandfather's side all the way back to the mid-1500s in the Province of Trapani and the town of Castellammare del Golfo. The records are superb! Not so with his wife, my grandmother's side from Termini Imerese. Perhaps if your organization could persist with the Diocese of Palermo and the parish priest who controls the records for Termini Imerese, we could get these records digitized! I am 74 years old and really would like to complete this tree for my descendants to come as I am the only one that reads Italian. Please help me to achieve the joy of finding 9th, 10th, 11th great grandparents in Termini as I have found in Castellammare del Golfo and Alcamo! The selfish refusal to release the church records is holding us all back from finding our current day cousins as well.
Thank you so very much! Mary Ann Bologna Jordan on behalf of the descendants of Termini Imerese in the USA.
