Can't find Census records :(

Postby LeandraCat » 23 Mar 2011, 18:19

Looking for Schillaci family from Palermo:

Paolo Schillaci, born 1893, husband of Lillian Schilaci (nee Torino).
Arrived in US in 1904
Children: Nicholas Schillaci, born 1924 (don't know the names of others)

Paolo arrived in 1904 with his brother, Nicolo (Nick), traveling to their father Carmelo.

I believe Carmelo arrived in 1903 with his wife Carmela Madonia and a son Francesco Paolo, but I am not 100% sure it's them...

Please help me find Paolo Schillaci or his Son in any of the US Census records.
They should be in New Jersey somewhere.

Thank you!

There are 914 persons named Schillaci (with two l's) in the current Italian white pages; only two named Schilaci (one 'l'). http://www.paginebianche.it/execute.cgi ... i&dv=&l=en

Likewise, there are many more Schillaci records at Ancestry . com then Schilaci's. I haven't located the census yet, but thought you might want to redirect your efforts slightly...
