If you see better, Ellis Island volounteers copied wrongly the name of town he was coming from
He was not from Taormina, but from Trasacco

In fact there are Petrei in Trasacco

If you want to know about his parents, brothers and sisters, you can request civil records to

Comune
Ufficio di Stato Civile
Piazza Mazzini, 1
67059 Trasacco (AQ)
Italy

segreteria@comune.trasacco.aq.it

or to

Archivio di Stato
Piazza della Repubblica 9
67100 L'Aquila
Italy


about Frank Demana, there is a Francesco Demana, coming from municipality of Careri, province of Reggio Calabria, region of Calabria
but he was born in another town

I hope it helps, bye Riccardo :lol:

Have been to Trasacco!! Loved the open markets they had there... rule was to never pay the asking price unless you got a price reduction...

Really beautiful area. Some of my ancestors surnames include DiPonzio, Calabrese, Corsi...

Some members of the Petrei family made it to Penns Grove in NJ. They were from the Teramo area, likely from Valle San Giovanni.
