Long Lost Sister – part 2 (Guiseppa Cuba) – 52 Ancestors

Since I had such good luck finding Italian records on FamilySearch.org, I decided to look for additional Cuba siblings.

By browsing the Italy Image Only Historical Records, I found more documents from Caltanissetta, Caltanissetta, Civil Registration (Tribunale), 1866-1910.

Lo and behold, I found another sister! Guiseppa born to Luigi Cuba and Rosaria Dimenza on 3 February 1886.

Italian families were typically very large. If you are researching your Italian genealogy and can’t find a birth record for your direct ancestor, try looking for the birth records of their siblings. Italian records contain a wealth of information, such as age of parents and occupation.

Buona Fortuna!
