Towns close to Termini Imerese

Post by harleynut97 »

I've hit a road block with an ancestor. I have very little information, but I believe I found his passenger list. On that record it shows his last residence being Termini Imerese. But I have gone through many years of birth records in Termini-Imerese with no luck.

His name is Emanuel Maggio. On census records it shows a birth year of January, 1857 or 1858. The passenger list gives Birth year as 1855. he married someone who in the US was named Grace in or about 1883 in Italy. Unfortunately I do not know her maiden name.

But my question is ,what other towns on this list may be close to Termini Imerese so I could check their birth records?

Ill probably post a second post and supply as much info as possible, but I did want to first check some other areas outside Termini Imerese.

Thank you Livio that certainly will keep me busy :) But maybe I should also ask about the surname Maggio.
Surprisingly it doesn't seem like a real common name. Does anyone know where that surname might be more prevalent?

Hey Marty, I really do think Emanuel was born and married in Montemaggiore. On his various US censuses it said
pretty consistantly 1857/58. So I was surprised when a 1855 birthdate came up. I see your from Chicago...I miss my old hometown.
