my name is Joan Profera Benoit. My Grandfather Louis Profera came to Ellis Island NY in the early 1900's with his brother, Giovanni, and his wife and children. Giovanni's family was turned away due to some illness of his young daughter. They then went on to Argentina where they settled. Family in the United States lost track of them. I would appreciate any information connected to the Profera name. You can view my family tree under Joan Profera. The family was from Partanna Sicily.
