Trying to find my Uncle

Postby Last » 06 Jul 2010, 16:29

Hi my uncle Judiog, Judioug, or Judyog MIRRO came to America from I think Naples at age 4. He may of arrived in 1906. I tried to locate him in the Ellis Island records, but had no luck. Could anyone help me to find him?

Would you consider Giuseppe Mero?

The first syllable in Giuseppe is pronounced somewhat like jew as in jewish, the 's' is pronounced like the American-English 'z'.

Mirro is a very uncommon Italian surname, so much so that I suspect it is not Italian at all. Mero, on the other hand, would be a good possibility and would be pronounced similarly to the American pronounciation of Mirro. See http://www.gens.labo.net/en/cognomi/genera.html for distribution of various names in modern Italy (type a name into the "Cognome" box.

Anway, if we consider Giuseppe Mero, then:

New York Passenger Lists, 1820-1957 about Giuseppe Mero

Although it is rare, the name Mirro does appear in Italy in the Bari area. Mirra is much more common.

Is this record a possibility?

Two questions for you.

Are the Mirras and Mirros two separate families or just a spelling change?

Do you know what town he came from?
