Finally found someone who posted a message about the Garnto name!!
I am looking for an Elizabeth Garnto who's son was named Carl Garnto. She was in her 90's when she died in the 1980's. I don't know what her husband's name was, but I believe she was from Georgia, and of Native American descent. This line of Garnto's came from Sicily.
Elizabeth and her son Carl lived in Umatilla, Florida until their deaths, and are buried there.
Carl Garnto's wife's name was Ruth, but I don't know what her maidian name was, nor Elizabeth's maidian name.
There was a Garnto in Myrtle Beach, S.C. in the 70 80's, but alas, no relation.
Carl Garnto was born on May14, 1910 and died July 25, 1991.
Carl's wife, Ruth, was born August12, 1913, and died on August 29, 1997.
If you have any infromation on this line of Garnto's, please let me know.
Thanks again.

Just came in from work and was working on this family name stuff and saw you message dated 9/16.
Dear Larry,
Sure we can exchange info on the Garnto name. I have a limited amount of info, but will share with you what I have.
The Garnto name is kinda rare in the U.S., so maybe our search won't be REAL hard. (I Hope).
Please let me know what you have, and maybe I can fill in some blanks for you.
a fellow searcher, Carol

Hi Carol,

I am Carl and Ruth Garntos grandaughter, at least one of them. My father is Carl Jr. and they are from Umatilla, FL. I live in Tavares and work in the local public library. I don't know to much about my family history, though I did try to ask my grandmother before she passed away. I do however have an Aunt Anne who is working on the family tree. I will see what I can do to get her e-mail address for you.

To Carla
