I'm working on a friend's family tree with the same name, also from Malta. My friend had a great-grandmother Marian (Mary Ann, Marianna) Mifsud born in Birchircara, Malta, about 1899. She married a Meli, or Melio, in the 1920's and immigrated with her children to the U.S. in 1935. Meli family is from Sleima, Malta. Her husband came over to the U.S. in 1934, and met up with his brother-in-law (Marian's brother) Emmanuel Mifsud. I'm in the process of tracking him down. Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
if you want to share further info.
