I can't find my great garndfather in Ellis Island Recor

Postby Lujan » 18 Sep 2007, 03:58

My great-grandfather, Santo Callari came to America from Geraci Siculo, Italy in 1900. I cannot find the exact date from the ship manifests on the Ellis Island Website. Can you help?

Hi Lujan

See if this might be him. The search has his last name as callaci but if you look at it I believe it is Callari. Also look at the other names around his - says he and others coming from Menti but some say Geraci.

Do you know how old your great grandfather was when he came or what year he was born?

Regards,
Elizabeth

In Menfi there are some Callaci still living and no Callari.
In Gerace Siculo there are some Callari still living and no Callaci.
