I can't really make out the name of the town he is from, it may be S. Antonio... can someone advise??
By any chance could the town be "Aci SantÃ¢â‚¬â„¢Antonio, Catania, Sicily, Italy" or "Case SantÃ¢â‚¬â„¢Antonino, Messina, Sicily"?
Like the rest of you, I'm having trouble reading the manifest.
Now there is microfilm for the town of Aci Sant'Antonio that you can order from the Family Hsitory Center. Here is the link for the film.
Here is the website for Aci Sant'Antonio.
I still can't find anything on the Case Sant'Antonino.
I can ask, do you have the Naturalization papers of Gaetano? Do you have his Death Certificiate? What kind of documents do you have for Gaetano?
I hope this helps,
No, i'm quite sure it is Aci SantÃ¢â‚¬â„¢Antonio, Catania, Sicily, Italy:
Notice how close it is to Pedara and Trecastagni?
It's all in the same region.
P.S. Anna, i've taken note of your e-mail address and will contact you when I get the information i've requested. If we are truly related, I would love to meet cousins (since i've already done that on other sides of my family). But, until then, I want to be absolutely sure about things.
Speaking of cousins marrying - if you click on this green document:
It will zoom in, showing Concetta ZappalÃƒÂ¡ (not mine, likely the wife of Alfio Laudani) having both her mother and father with the last names of ZappalÃƒÂ¡. 8O
Funny stuff, eh?
