Hi John and Evelyn.
Thanks for the responce , we may get a few more branches on Miragliotta tree, I am in contact with My cousins in Peru ,where some of the Miragliotta , Basile , Tripi Marchese, Cicirello familys went to fish, some stayed there and others came to Fremantle . Some of the names you mention i think i have in my files and will check them out, in the mean time have a look at the Tripi forum and the Travia-Basile Forum.this week i made contact with the great grandson of Providenza , from the Travia -Basile line in W.A.,plus the great grand son of the Cicirello Marchese line born in Morrocco, and now in France. I am interested in finding why on the family document i have for the civil registration of my great grand parents marriage in 1898 before my grand father Calogero's name and one sister Rosaria it says (L'Ignoti)Parents unknown,its a bit of a mystery ,no one in the family was aware that he may have been adopted. As far as the people you mention being related, as i said to one of my contacts, halve of all the Sicilians in Fremantle are related to me.The first 11 men from Sicily came as a group ,
and i recall that there was a 11-12 year old boy with them, and i think they were all connected some way. There was a book printed some years back called Italian roots in Australian soil, that had a lot of information about the early Sicilian Fishermen.Keep in touch, and we can all share family history and as the saying goes many hands make light work.
