Maiale

Postby L.Maiale » 20 Oct 2005, 08:41

My last name is Maiale. My great-grandfather came to Ellis Island around 1912 and was about 20 at the time. His name was Pasquale Maiale, and he came from Mazzara del Vallo, Palermo, Sicilia. I was wondering how I could find my ancestors back in Italy. Over the years my father has tried, but never had any luck. I was also wondering how to find something symbolic to represent the name Maiale, and not necessarily a pig! <-- this being for a possible tattoo. Thank you.
