Am having a terrible time finding passenger record of my Grandmother. According to the 1930 Census she arrived in 1897.
Maria [Mary] Trombatore
Born: Jan. 10, 1884
Corleone, Province of Palermo, Sicily
Parents: Vincenzo Trombatore and Giovanna Ferrara
She would have arrived in New Orleans, LA

Would appreciate any Help at all.

WOW, I have been looking for information on my Grandmother's ship for quite some time and you two got it in a matter of minutes. Thank you so much.
Have a couple of questions:
Riccardo: Thank you for sending a list of micofilm on the arrivals to New Orleans, where can I rent these Microfilm?

Laura: Thank you for the Passenger List. Cannot believe what I am seeing, In looking over the list, is it possible that her mother Giovanna was using her maiden name [Farrara], also some of the siblings are not the ones I have on my Family Tree. But I will check them out on the Census, could be cousins, you think?

Thank you both so much
Mardi

Mardi,

in Italy women keep their maiden name even if married, so it is normal to find Giovanna travelling under her maiden name...
About the children I can say that for example the first one Paolo has another letter before Paolo, it seems an F, maybe he was Francesco Paolo?
then Maria and Salvatrice (two females) and Giovanni (male)...
It was common that people decided to change their italian names just to americanize them..
Do you have any censuses of the family?

You're welcome Mardi... here you can find many persons who are very glad to help... :D

I think this is your grandmother 1900 census:

1900 United States Federal Census
about Juana Trombatore
Name: Juana Trombatore possible Giovanna?
[Juan Trombatore]
Home in 1900: Police Jury Ward 5, Assumption, Louisiana
Age: 42
Birth Date: May 1858
Birthplace: Italy
Race: White
Ethnicity: American
Immigration Year: 1896
Relationship to head-of-house: Mother
Father's Birthplace: Italy
Mother's Birthplace: Italy
Mother: number of living children: 6
Mother: How many children: 6
Marriage Year: 1878
Marital Status: Widowed
Years Married: 22
Residence : Labadie, Upper Texas Towns & Little Texas Plantation, Assumption, Louisiana
Occupation: View Image
Neighbors: View others on page
Household Members: Name Age
Luke Ficaro 32
Biaza Ficaro 24
Luke Ficaro 2
Charlie Ficaro 2.12
Juana Trombatore 42 born in IT, on May 1858
Francisca Trombatore 17 male, born in IT in June 1882 (F Paolo on the arrival manifest)
Sarvatriche Trombatore 12 female, born in IT on Apr. 1888, Salvatrice on the arrival manifest... I think this is Theresa
Juvanina Trombatore 10 female, born in IT on March 1890, Giovanni (male) on the manifest but possible it was a writing error... possible she's Jennie
Cosima Trombatore 1 born in LA, on January 1899....

On this census she is listed as mother... but as the head was Luke Ficaro, born in Italy on 1878 I don't think she was his mother... maybe she was the mother of Luke's wife Biagia?
If you look well the page 1 of the census manifest you'll find a Luke Trombatore (just a few lines above) born on january 1878 in Italy... maybe he was his first son?

1900 census page 1:

Thank you for the 1900 Census, I think it is my GGrandmohter's Census. My Grandmother married in 1899 to my Grandfather Giuseppi [Joseph] Calamusa. She was 15 and he was 29 years of age. I found the 1930 Census on them but have not come across the 1900 1910 or 1920. I know that the were living Labadieville "Little Texas Plantation", LA.

You have been a trememdous help.

Re: Looking for help locating Sierchio Family on Mainifest 1

Postby Ginasnow » 27 Sep 2010, 21:31

Hello everyone,

I am stuck on my quest to find my ancestors on any ship manifests. If anyone can help I would appreciate it. I am a newbie to this only 3 years in. My gg-grandfather's name was Gaetano Sierchio from Santomenna, Salerno Italy. He was born 1in 1867. His naturalization records state he immigrated in 1887. On his first trip he came alone. On his second trip he came in 1890 with his wife Donata Dicorcia Sierchio (she was called Anna here),and thier toddler daughter Mary. Any help is so appreciated. I can be directly emailed at Snottygirl96@yahoo.com.

Thank you.

Gina

Hi Gina
Hello and welcome to the forum. You need to click on the new topic option at the bottom left and post your query again, so as to separate it from this thread. I'm sure then that someone on this forum will help you.

Thanks
Peg
