Hi, have a question

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, have a question

Postby jjr5_1 » 29 Aug 2005, 21:31

Hi, my name is Jennifer, I am pretty new at all the genealogy stuff. So, if I ask questions that are pretty dumb, pelase bare with me.

I am looking for some info on my family. They lived in Cacammo, Sicily. I know that they came into the Us in 1904. I have the 1910 census that showed they settled in Jefferson County, Texas....with the last naem Male. Their surname in Sicily was spelled Meli. Now, the surname is Malley. I am trying to find which port they came into. I am not for sure if they came in through New Orleans, or another port. I tried Ellisisland.org and can't get any info out of that. If someone else knows of other websites, please, let me know! thank! :lol:

Hi Jennifer,

Thank you for telling us where you have looked and providing information. It helps.

Ancestry.com has an immigration collection that you can check. (My subscription just expired, so I can't check for you.)

I think you mean the town is Caccamo in the province of Palermo.
