Maffei in America

Over 25 million Italians have emigrated between 1861 and 1960 with a migration boom between 1871 and 1915 when over 13,5 million emigrants left the country for European and overseas destinations.

hi elisa, my name is mauricia maffei i randomly typed in ellis island when the maffei's arrived and found this website and saw you were woundering if roberta maffei was a daughter of one of your relitives. she is my grandmother. she married into the maffei family. she married my grandfather vito maffei. My grandfather vito has 3 brother vince, cozy and frank and one sister marry. im not close to them but they all live near alliance OH, and in Ravenna OH. My great grandparents were deseaced before my time so i never meet them. All i know is that my grandfathers brothers were born in italy and my great grandmother was pregnant and had my grandfather vito in america. i dont know the dates when they arived in america. My drandfather is around 70 yrs old. he told me that his family owned a celery farm i dont know if that was in italy or here in america. My grandfather also told me that his family was from bari italy. Im not sure if thats correct.

Hi Mauricia! Thanks a lot for your information! I asked if Roberta Maffei was one of my relatives beacause I had seen thaht she lived in Alliance, like my relatives... but i didn't know there were two Maffei families. Can I ask you a pleasure? Could you ask your grandparents if they know anything about the other Maffei Family, please?? Thank you!

Re: Maffei in America

Hi Mauricia,

I am almost certain I am your distant cousin. Vince Maffei was my grandfather. He passed away a few days ago and I was searching for some family information. His brothers included Cosmo, Vito, Frank and his sister Mary. By Chance, do you know Mary's last name? I am in charge of writing his obituary and want to make sure I get the details right. It would so interesting to learn more about our heritage!
