Dear Dana,

Can you please be a little more specific with your information? Can you please give us full names, year of birth, spouse's name, any children they had, and where they settled in the USA?

All this information can help us find your ancestors in the census records and then we can try to help you locate where in Italy they are from and how to go about obtaining information.

Please get back to us with more information so that we can help you better.

Smile for me!:)

Hi Dana, the correct spelling is: ScilabrA.
This surname, south-west Sicily's tipical and no most diffused. If you can say us the first name and some other detail, is better for an good help... regards, suanj

Thank you both for responding so quickly.

When I started to search, I did notice that there was a chance that there was a misspelling in the last name. I don't know where in Sicily they were from. I am trying to find a living relative who knows but so far, no luck.

My great-gand father was Giuseppe and his 2nd wife, don't know the name of his first, was Antonette. His birth year may be abt 1885 and hers,for sure, is 1890. I don't know when they came over or if my grandfather, Frank Joseph, was born in Sicily or the US. Don't know the exact date of birth. Year is around 1905-1910. Other children are Nicholas(1909), Pauline(1915), Joseph(1917),Helen(1921)and Salvatore(1925).

Not sure but I think they settled in Chicago before going to NY. I could be wrong but NY is where all eventually ended up. In the states though, we all spell our last name with an O. (Scilabro).

Thank you so much for any help that you can give me.

No problem...glad to be of some help.
Did you notice on the census info provided by Suanj
that Michael was married at 18, Antoinette at 24?
Yet Michael is older than she by 5 years...leads me to
believe that he was married previously, which fits some of
the search criteria you provided.

However, I am still looking at manifest. There were 18 persons surnamed
SCILABRA, and many, many more with mispellings.
Also if more census infos could be found, 1910 and 1920, that would help as well. So far, I have found nothing in way of census......... :roll:

In the meantime, pull as many documents as you can on your family.
Birth, marriage and death. Naturalization, social security apps, obituaries hold key infos. Did the family attend a specific church......have you checked for church records??? Do you have any old photographs, letters, ect., which may contain clues......and interview all family members for info.

I did not notice the census. Glad that you pointed that one out.
I am trying to locate family. Most have passed away and there aren't many documents on my family.
Thank you for your help. Any other advice would be appreciated
