My husband and I moved to Italy, temporarily, for a job opportunity and have been here for a little over a year. We will be traveling to Sicily in a few weeks and are curious if there is family still here. Any advice on how I can figure this out? His great-grandparents came to America in 1910 and we want to find out if he had siblings that stayed in Italy.
Alphonsus Consiglio- Born: Sept. 19, 1888 in Terrassini Sicily Married: April 19, 1910 in Ontario Canada Resided: Wyandotte, MI Parents: mother- Providentia Zerilli Father- Gujetunus Consiglio (???? Name is from marriage record and in Latin. I was thinking MAYBE it's Caietanus, which translates to Gaetano??? I know "i" and "j" are sometimes interchangeable in Latin and the "u" could be an "a". I swear the first letter is a G and not a C though... So confusing! I found a "Gaetano Consiglio" passenger record from Ellis island who was going to stay with his brother Alphonso who lived in Wyandotte, MI (same location as the great-grandfather) I know Italians recycle their first names like crazy so its quite possible the name is Gaetano.
