Hi,
I've a similar name - my gggg-grandmother Francesca Bajata was born in Palermo, married Onofrio Pileri and had a daughter Guiseppa in Palermo Province in about 1794.
Guiseppa had children in Ficarazzi, Palermo Province.
I don't have anything earlier on them. I think that Bajata and Baiada may be the same line, just written differently by different record keepers.
Have you anything that corresponds to this?
David

David, thanks for your email. I do know that the surnames of BAIADA, BAIATA, BAJADA, BAJATA, are connected.
I was informed that in the mid 1600's the BAJADA's originated from Malta, and ended up in Palermo, Sicily.
I have been unable to trace beyond 1850's. The surnames you have are unfamiliar to me.
The other surnames connected by marriage to the BAIADA's are, Passalacqua, Gallina, and Mannino.
Regards from Melbourne, Australia.

Hi Dorina,
Nice to hear from you.
Thanks for your quick response. I've turned up little on the web on Bajata, but microfilmed records are much better. Where did you hear about Malta for the origin of the name?
Do you have names and dates for those going back to 1850? Our associated surnames are probably unfamiliar because they were from different 'communes' in Palermo. Do you have the names of specific towns in Palermo where I can look?
Regards from Santa Barbara California,
David

David,
My maiden name is BAIADA. My father's name was Giuseppe. His parents were Giuseppe and Girolama (Passalacqua). great-grandparents were Andrea and Stefana (Gallina).
All were born and died in Carini (Province of Palermo).
I believe the original spelling in Malta was BAJADA or BAJATA, but it was changed to BAIADA in Sicily.
I am almost certain we may have a connection way, way, back somewhere.
The "expert" on this family name is Michael BAIADA. He lives in Colorado. His email address is ... RMBAssociates@compuserve.com
Let him know you have been in touch with me, only don't expect a quick reply from him, as he is a pilot with United Airlines.
He also has a family tree website with names, etc. Him and I think we may be related some 4 generations ago by the name of Alfonso BAIADA.
I have travelled to Sicily, speak the language very well, but I was unsuccessful with any further search.
Hope you find the info you are searching - this family tree thing can become addictive stuff !
Take care and all the best,
Dorina.

Hi Dorina,
I've not been to Italy yet and I only know a few words of Italian, just enough to get basic information from the records.
You said that you haven't been able to get past 1850. You are in all kinds of luck.
There are Civil Registation records from Carini, from 1820 to 1898 on microfilm (on 65 rolls) and there are census records from 1681 to 1748 on 7 rolls.
If you go to
http://www.familysearch.org/
you can find the address of a Family History center near you where you can order these records and read them.
I hope this is useful.
My best,
David

Thank you David ... much appreciated.
I hope Michael can help you with your search.
By the way, I have travelled by Santa Barbara.
And you didn't even say Hi! :-)
Aussie regards,
Dorina.

I was very interested in your message. BAJATA is my maiden name. I was born and I'm living in Marseille (France), but my family lived for at least three generations in Tunisie. I saw they came from Trapani (Sicilia) but I did'nt know the family's origine were from Malta. BAJATA, BAIADA and BAJADA is the same name. It appears under the three ways in my family. I thought the name was from spanish origine... don't you think so ? I apologize for my English. Are you interested on these elements ?
Bye for now.

Hi Nicole,
You said that BAJATA, BAIADA and BAJADA is the same name. Among the Bajata records from Ficarazzi, Sicily I have seen the single spelling variation BAIATA.
If the family went to Malta from Spain, that would be very good to know. Do you recall where you learned that? Do you have any idea where in Spain, and perhaps when they went to Malta?
Your English is fine. And I am interested in these elements.
Regards,
David
