Canicattari?

Post by warriorrabbit » 22 Dec 2007, 18:18

Giuseppe Visalli arrives in NYC in 1907 aboard the Friedrich der Grosse. He was born in San Pier Niceto, but says his last place of residence is Canicattari. That's how ellisisland.org transcribed it, and what it looks like, but I can't find it. Any thoughts?

I suspect that his town of origin is Canicatti, Postale 96010, Provincia Agrigento is the town listed in the manifest for the 7 apparently contract laborers destined to Boston on a Germanlloyd passenger ship prepared by someone in Naples prior to their departure. Its not the first time manifests have been found wanting. =Peter=

The place of birth in the manifest clearly reads Canicattini. I believe that Laura is correct, the town is Canicattini Bagni, Province of Siracusa

Well, they're both pretty far afield from his place of birth, San Pier Niceto...but I can see now how what looked like an a could be an i and the first hump of the n (and the r the second hump).

Thanks!

It could be either town and both are strong possiblities so the best way to find out is for someone to check the Canicatti Bagni microfilms which go from 1809 to 1910 while those of Canicatti proper do not exist on microfilm. =Peter=

You can go to your nearest Mormon family history library by going to www.famuilysearch.org and then rent out the civil records forCanicattari Bagni for about $5.00. They supply the equipment to view and copies can be made on the premises. =Peter=
