Hello, I am researching my husband's family tree and have hit a wall. I hope that someone here can help me become unstuck.

Family history, US census data and records from Ellis Island all agree that Alberto Luna was born in 1887 and emmigrated from San Pier Niceto, Sicily in 1900 with his ship leaving from Genoa. Unfortunately, this is all the information I have on him. I have been unsuccessful in finding a birth record for him and no one in the family knows his parents name. According to family history, he was given teh surname "Luna" because his mother was the maid of the mayor of Messina and she became pregnant by him. When her pregnancy was discovered (according to family lore), the mayor discredited her by naming him "Luna" or "of the moon."

Can anyone help me with this inquiry? Thank you.

Have you attempted to write to his home town ( commune)? Here is some information about the town:
italia.indettaglio.it/...iceto.html
en.comuni-italiani.it/083/080/

Within these pages are#s you can call. You can also try the "white Pages for Italy.
www.paginebianche.it/index.html
Type in his name and where he was from and you may find some living relatives. I did this for my family in Piazza Armerina and there were 7 families with my last name there. I hit the mark with one of them and have been in contact ever since.
