    I would like to know about a branch of family lived in Mineo and Belpasso named Magri. One of them was a notary and the other was a “mugnaio” another one was somehow related to Polizzi and Tedeschi or his wife in Catania. A few were killed in Catania while escaping from the King’s guards I believe in 1849 riot. I would appreciate any information.
    Thank You Francesca
