Looking for information about the Canarelli & Trolla fam

Postby NCJE2910 » 02 Jun 2009, 21:23

I'm Looking for information about the Canarelli & Trolla families - my great-great-grandparents - Nicolo Canarelli and his wife Jennie (Giovanna) Trolla. I know Nicolo was from Agira, Enna, Sicily, Italy - born in 1879 and died in New York in 1927; he immigrated to America in 1894 on the ship Entella. His parents were supposedly Luigi & Gaetana. Jennie was born in about 1885 in Naples, Italy and died in America in 1924. Not much else is known about her except that when she came to America she lived with some cousins, the Gentiles. Her parents were supposedly Carmine & Rosa. Not much else is known about Nicolo either. Any information about them or their parents would help a lot.

Finding his ship manifest may help if he traveled with relatives.
Since he arrived abt 1892-3, he would have been abt 14 years old.
His naturalization paperwork wasn't much help - abt 1906 the documents contained more information.
You may want to order his 1901 marriage record as suanj suggested earlier in the post.
With his town of origin you can research his family in Italy.
