Marriage of Liberato Nigro and Olga Minchella
« on: Sunday 05 November 17 12:37 GMT (UK) »
My Aunt Olga Roma Minchella (born 1930 in Scotland) married Liberato Nigro (born 1924 in Philadelphia) around 1954 in Philadelphia but I can't find any marriage record for them.  I realise they might have married elsewhere but have searched worldwide on Ancestry and nothing turns up.  Does anyone have any idea why I cannot find a record please?

The only comprehensive source I know for Philadelphia marriages online is here - https://www.familysearch.org/search/collection/1388247 - but it only goes up to 1951.

Thank you Shellyesq. 

I know that Olga definitely married after 1952 as that's when she emigrated from Scotland to the USA.

Just close the clipped article that someone else has saved and then you can scroll to the obit for Nigro, Olga.

Just out of interest, did you have a subscription to be able to view these obits?

So how did you gain access to the obituaries?

I was also looking for my Great Aunt Maria Concetta Benedetto died 1980 in Philadelphia.  She was born Maria Concetta Divito, married my Great Uncle Luigi Minchella, was widowed and married again to a Nick Benedetto.  Trouble with searching for her is that she uses different variations of her name, one time she was Maria Concetta Minchella Benedetto, sometimes Concetta Minchella, other times Maria C. Divito Minchella Benedetto (on her gravestone).
