Name of town

Postby EKKIE » 06 May 2004, 17:01

Does anyone know of a place by the name of Raccina. I found this name on a Manifest at the Ellis Island website. I can't locate it and am wondering if the name is actually Raccuia. Thanks for the help. Jo

There is a Fracina in the province of Cremona but there is no immediate record for Raccina or Raccuia. What province are you talking about or the region atg least.?? Peter

I found this post interesting, because I am trying to find port of entry of my grandfather.
While I do not know of any city named Raccina, my grandparents could possibly have entered by this last name ....
where did you find this Ellis Island listing ?
