Help with Italian city name!

Postby NCJE2910 » 04 Sep 2011, 04:30

Hey guys, I need some help in deciphering the name of the town my ancestors came from.
My ancestors are the Mirabellas - listed on the attached manifest. If someone could help decipher the town name (place of origin) listed alongside their names, I would greatly appreciate it.
Thanks so much,
Nick
