Magri Family of Palermo Italy

Post by Diane »

Hello,
I'm seeking information on Alfio Magri's family from Citta, Metropolitana, di, Palermo, Palermo, Sicilia, Italy.
Birth 1870-1877 in Palermo, Italy
Death 1957 Vancouver, B.C. Canada.
Immigrated 1908-1909 to Vancouver B.C. Canada
Father Iquazio or Ignacio Magri of Palermo, Italy
Mother Maria Sebastiano or (unknown) Palermo, Italy
Alfio married Teresina (Teresa) Miceili of Cosenza, Italy
Alfio and Teresa had 7 children in total, only Mary their 1st child was born in Italy, the rest were born in Canada.

I am the daughter of one son Sebastian Magri. All of the Magri siblings from Alfio and Teresa are disease. We have tried to find our Italian family lineage and would love for some clues or places to look on our Italian relatives. Suggestions on where to post my questions is also most welcome. I'm seeking /parents/siblings of Alfio Magri records or any records sharing their lineage. Thank you for reading and good luck on the searches you are conducting.

Thank you,
Diane Magri

According to this manifest (also see second page):

https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903 ... AQK3Y-JNKQ

Alfio was 32 in 1909 (so, born about 1877) and from Lentini.

PippoM,

Thank you so much! Apologizes for not getting back to you sooner. I'm doing both sides of my family so it takes me all over the place. I actually just today found this information, a family member must have seen your post and passed it on to me. It's all correct, thank you. It appears Alfio was born in Lentini and came to Canada in May 1908 to be with his wife Teresa and daughter Mary. He than boarded a ship to Seattle to see his sister Mary Magri in 1909. This information cleared so many questions and maybe we can find more answers of the Magri's.
Thank you again,
Diane Magri
