Transcription help needed

Postby Firinne » 15 Apr 2009, 18:24

I'm trying to figure out what the address on the first line says. I know the city is Palermo but am unsure of the rest. This is from an old ship manifest.

Thanks John - that's definitely possible! I can't seem to find Piazza Marmi in Palermo but that's not to say it wasn't there in 1911. I found some other similar Piazza's - your suggestion has gotten me on track.

Godrano is a comune in the Province of Palermo , located about 25 miles south of Palermo.

Maybe?

If you google Piazza Marmi, you'll get several returns for that address. In particular, there seems to be a couple of medical or pharmaceutical supply firms at that location. However, when I googled Vicolo Godrano I didn't get any returns. Perhaps you might find other references to that address in the records. BTW, the "19" might very well be a "15".

Hi Firinne,
Piazza marmi was renamed Piazza Vittorio Emanuele Orlando after the building of courthouse of Palermo (1938). Piazza Marmi was delimited by Via Nicolo' Turrisi and Via Giovan Battista Pagano (see the image attached). It was a big square but after the building of Corthouse was reduced and renamed.

gretings from Palermo.

Vincenzo
I'm searching lost relatives and descendant of my greatgrandfather Vincenzo Genualdi (or Gennaldi or Genuardi) and my greatgrandmother Concetta Davola (their sons: Angela, Carmela, Antonio, Bartolomeo, Ernesto, Simone, Riccardo, Maria) went in Chicago,Ill., and New Orleans, in 1880-1920 from Sicily. Other family related : Jacobucci or Jacopucci (from Central Italy).
