Maceri/Micele/ Michelli surname-

Postby shari0901 » 20 Apr 2007, 04:31

Most of these name variations I believe happened after he arrived to the United States.

I have information that my GGrandfather Giuceppe Maceri had a bank account in S. Margherita Beleci.
I know that he was born in Memplici, Italy (so states the declaration of intention, the city may be spelled wrong) on April 25, 1877. He states his last foreign rsidence was Santa margherita Itally and he arrived in the US in 1908. The Decleration states his name is Joe Micele or Joseph Michelli, but the bank account book states Giuceppe Meceri.

He came to america on the San Georgio. My grandmother indicates he came with his brother.

He later married Lucille Alello and resided in Beaumont, Texas.

I also know he wrote to his sister in Italy most likely in Santa Margherita until he passed away in 1944. My Grandmother would like to find her cousins if possible, but she does not have his sister's name.

Does anyone know how to look up bank information? I have an account number? Does anyone know of that family name in Santa Margherita?



Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Shari Summerlin
