I have not been able to find much on my Ggfather Michael Maley.
I can't find a birth certificate b" 1858 in NY or any christening records.
No marriage license or location but have a year per census.
Census says his parents were born in Italy
I can't find his death record or grave.
I know Maley is probably Maila or something other than the above spelling but have no idea how many options there are. Willing to search all ship passenger lists with Italian passengers for anything that looks close but I can't even find the ships or know where to start.
If anyone has any insight or suggestions please let me know. I may have to hire a professional but want to give this one last try. I have been searching for over a year now.
