I'm looking for information about my great-great grandparents, Ernesto & Aurelia Migliorini of Lucca. Ernesto Migliorini arrived via Ellis Island (ellisisland.org) on Feb 6, 1904 at the age of 29. His wife Aurelia arrived later with five kids in tow. I can't find the record of Aurelia arriving. My grandmother (now deceased) told me that Aurelia and kids were sick when they arrived and were quarantined in Canada. Does anyone have any idea of where in Canada someone might be quarantined?
Secondly, how would I reach the Lucca Vital Records office to get a copy of Ernesto & Aurelia's birth certificates?
You do not mention in your post the maiden name of your female ancestor....as Italian women do not take the name of their husband it is neccesary to search for the manifest using the maiden name. Only the children would be listed under the fathers name.
