Need to know more on Migliaccio Family please help!

Postby Jordantk » 23 Oct 2013, 22:14

Hello,

I have been searching for quite a while now looking for information on my mother's fathers side of the family. When my family came over from Sicily they changed the name from Migliaccio to Milaccio. And that's where I pretty much hit a dead end. I know very little but will tell you all that I know.

My grandfather's name is - Joseph Milaccio he has a brother named Anthony Milaccio

His Father is named- Michael Milaccio but may have been born Anthony Michael Milaccio or Joseph Michael Milaccio married a Carrie Catherine Cassell she went by Catherine and her last name was also changed and we do not know what her original name is as well.

His Grandmother is named- Louise Skiano or Schiano there is a debate on spelling. She was born in 1882 in Italy. She arrived in New York in 1905 at age 23. A Census from 1930 says she lived Philadelphia. She got divorced and married a Ralph Schiano. But, I came across a paper that had a louise schiano married to a salvatore schiano so ralph may not be his name either. we do not know her maiden name. There is no marriage license, divorce paper, or census for Louise and my great grandfather. (james?) I'm starting to think he was not real.

His Grandfather is named- maybe James.. can not find any records on him.

I also know that Michael (my great-grandfather) may have had siblings named Joseph(may actually be my great grandfather due to birth dates recently discovered.),jimmy,johnny and a sister named frances Milaccio as well. And a few half siblings from his mother (louise) and step-father (ralph) named frankie,Pasquelo, and christine Schiano.

So if anyone could help my family and I it would be greatly appreciated. We have truly hit a dead end :(

I believe that (MAYBE) the maiden name of Luise could be D'Abundo ( so no De Buono as I thinked initially), because I found this possible marriage record:

Name: Migliaccio
Spouse's Name: Maria L D'Abundo
Event Year: 1905
License Number: 185722
Image Number: 00001
Digital Folder Number: 4140419


arrival:
New York, Passenger Lists, 1820-1957 about Luide S'abundocheain
Name: Luide S'abundocheain ( Maria Luisa D'ABUNDO)
Arrival Date: 13 May 1905
Birth Date: abt 1882
Age: 23
Gender: Female
Ethnicity/ Nationality: Italian (South) (Italian)
Port of Departure: Naples, Italy

If she was from Forio, this MIGHT be Gennaro's Ellis Island Manifest, as this one has the same age and going from Forio to Philadelphia:

Thanks to all of you!! This helped us so much. Luisa is definitely my great great grandmother, and As far as genarro goes I believe he is my great great grandfather as well. Was divorce a common thing to do back then? I was under the impression that divorce was very rare...? To the person who asked if I knew anything more on michaels family all I know is what I wrote before unfortunately.. Do any of you know anything about a Catherine cassell? That is my great grandmother and she was married to Michael. Catherine was born in 1917. Her father was Anthony cassell born in 1885 in Italy and her mother was Sarah logue born in 1897 in Pennsylvania. Even little things would help us thanks again for everything !

Sorry for the multiple posts.. but can any of you offer any insight as to why my family's name would have been changed from migliaccio to milaccio.. and who was the one to actually change it. I assumed it was Ginanio but he was still a migliaccio? also, is there a birth certificate anywhere for Ginanio/Gennaro that would tell me his parents? Another question is if my great-grandfather was really born Michael. Because there no michael's listed on any of the census i've seen with louisa and ralph. Thanks for helping me out with all of these questions.It means a lot we've been trying to find answers for years.

Hi:
-Maria Luisa D'Abundo is your gggmother.. that is sure to 100%
my search is right! :D

-she was born in Forio d'Ischia on 25 Jan 1882 daughter of Giuseppe D'Abundo and of Maria Raffaela Agnese Di Tommaso (Di Tommaso is her maiden name)

- Ginanio is the bad transcription of italian Gennaro; the surname was MIGLIACCIO and I believe that he was born also in Forio d'Ischia, but I no found the birth record in 1879 Forio d'Ischia births... I found a Gennaro Migliaccio born in 1877 in Forio d'Ischia..
Gennaro changed the first name in James... I no have further infos...
Maybe Gennaro died before of 1926 and Louise remarried at Raffaele Schiano...

I believe that could be very helpful to find the 1910 census of family..
