#1: HelP finding siblings of great grandparents who immigrated Author: tkconsiglio, Posted: Sat Sep 15, 2012 7:54 pm ---- Ciao!
So we are wondering if my husband has family in Italy still. His great-grandfather came to America and we want to find out if he had siblings that stayed in Italy. Where can I look?
Born: Sept. 19, 1888 in Terrassini Sicily
Married: April 19, 1910 in Ontario Canada
Resided: Wyandotte, MI
Parents: Providentia Zerilli
Gujetunus Consiglio (???? Name is from marriage record and in Latin. I was thinking MAYBE it's Caietanus, which translates to Gaetano??? I know "i" and "j" are sometimes interchangeable in Latin and the "u" could be an "a". I swear the first letter is a G and not a C though... So confusing! I found a "Gaetano Consiglio" passenger record from Ellis island who was going to stay with his brother Alphonso who lived in Wyandotte, MI (same location as the great-grandfather) I know Italians recycle their first names like crazy so its quite possible the name is Gaetano.
Born: Sept. 28, 1890 in Terrassini Sicily
Immigrated: March 28, 1910 on Martha Washington
Parents- Vitus Pellerito (marriage record, Name probably in Latin)
Any help would be appreciated. Grazie Mille!

I doubt it would be Gennaro. Have you contacted member Vincenza? She's from Michigan and has done a lot with the records of Terrasini. Maybe she could help you?
