paciero family search

Postby mmayrend » 18 Feb 2006, 02:06

Hello Group,

I am searching for possible records in Italy for my maternial Grandfather. His name was Umberto Paciero and he emigrated to the United States in 1913.

I am told he was from an adopted family, and that he was of the Catholic faith. Any one know of a Sicelian family that sent an adopted son to America? His Ellis records show that he was heading to Detroit, Michigan.

Ellis Island records of his arrivial in the United States.
Arrivial date 09 April 1913
Last residence: Partinico, Palermo
Age at arrival: 17 years old

email of the public relations office is:

Hi Michael: However on ship's manifest are wrote that the Umberto's adoptive father was Antonino SORESI in Partinico.. and on ship's manifest also that Umberto was born in Palermo and resident in Partinico.. but on militar record are wrote Partinico as birthplace.. and again: Umberto joining to Domenico Lo Iacono cousin in Detroit [url=http://ellisisland.org/search/shipManifest.asp?MID=06831962910267055616&order_num=913691740&ORDER_ID=1500290253&pID=101297170481&lookup=101297170481&show=%5C%5C192%2E168%2E4%2E229%5Cimages%5CT715%2D1435%5CT715%2D14350776%2ETIF&origFN=%5C%5C192%2E168%2E4%2E229%5CIMAGES%5CT715%2D1435%5CT715%2D14350777%2ETIF]
