Cittagia, Palermo, Italy

Post by JOHN08 »

The WWI draft registration has the place of birth for Peter Zangaro: Cittagia, Palermo, Italy. There is no town listed in province of Palermo with this spelling. Thanks for any help.

A guess. Correct surname is Zangara. Place of birth Geraci Siculo. See 1905 manifest below, lines 10-12 showing a Pietro Zangora with sister Rosa and mother Maria going to Passaic to join brothers Benedetto, Antonio and Giuseppe.

Biff,

Thanks for your help. Pietro Paolo Zangara mother's surname is difficult to read: Bi?cana. Maybe another set eyes can help.

I agree. As a Bivona myself, I'm pretty good at recognizing it when i see it. :D

I am new here. I searching for the Zangara family. My great grandfather Domenico Zangara was born in 1864. He married Anna Maria Logalbo. Does anyone have information on the Zangara’s? Can you translate this document for me? I am visiting Sicily in April and would love to find homes, churches etc. of my ancestors.

Welcome to the forum!

If you post the document someone will take a look at it for you. Also, I would start up a separate thread for this topic. Can you tell us which town in Sicily your Domenico Zangara was born in, and any other information you already have about him and Anna Logalbo (or is it Logallo?).
