Hello, would any one be able to tell me how or where to go about finding family records out of Italy. My g grandfathers sister married a Menutole and I am not even sure that is how it was spelled for sure but that is what show up on one of the census's in Mass. A record found at Footnote says he was from Messina, Italy.
This is how his father showed up in earlier census JOSEPH MINUTOLI / [ JOSEPH MONUTOLI]
I hope I have give enough informaiton if not let me know will see what else I can dig up. I do have that Nicholas was naturalized about 1917 in Mass. One site says he came to the states about 1900 but this excert says other wise...the below listed is his father.
