Sirna/Di Franco/Gargliano - San Fratello

Postby jennyro » 17 Feb 2015, 20:48

Hello everyone,
I'm new to this site. I'm trying to find out any information I can about my relatives from San Fratello, Sicily who immigrated to the Bronx NY around 1906 and then to Canada in 1932.

My great grandfather's name was Guiseppe Joseph Sirna, married to Maria Di Franco who died in 1932 (had two sons - Anthony and Sam), he was re-married to Theresa Gargliano (not sure if that is spelled correctly) and they had two children: Antoinetta and Henry whom were both born in Canada..

If anyone has any information please please respond : )

Thanking you in advance!!!

Marty, I believe the date in the margin is 23 August 1924.
Here is the arrival manifest in Sept. 1924 for Giuseppe Sirna and his wife, Maria Di Franco, from San Fratello.
BTW - they are listed as Canadian Citizens... and their final destination is Ottawa. :-)
