Egizii family

Post by NTT » 21 Aug 2012, 19:42

Hello, I am searching the roots of my husband's Italian family.
I'm interested in the part of the family that emigrated to Canada.
His father, Tonis Egizii (from Abruzzo, Caramanico)came in a vessel to Halifax, I believe, on April 20, 1953, and relocated to Toronto, Canada. He married Pasquarosa Alberico (from Abruzzo, San Vittorino)
I'm trying to find information about that ship where he came.
I think was the "Homeland".
I would like to find the passenger list, to confirm that or another information related with this.
Also, I would like to know the origin of this surname EGIZII, not very common.
Thank you for your time.

Welcome to the Forum!

Can't find ship arrivals for Halifax after 1935 online

Library Archives Canada ... 003-e.html

Halifax (Nova Scotia), 1881-1935

It may have to do with privacy laws?

Found on the Canadian Pier 21 site:
The Museum does not have access to immigration records, manifest or passenger lists for persons arriving after 1935 under the Privacy Act of Canada. We will not be able to advise you on which ship or date someone arrived if they entered Canada after 1935.
