Interesting that it says they were travelling to Wallesville Ohio and that their mothers name was Lucia. Both were born in Carovilli, Molise. Might this Lucia be the daughter of your Sabatino?

Thank you so much for all this information it is much more than I hoped for.
sabatino's mother's name also was Lucia so that would explain the manifest.
All the help is much appreciated I am very new at this and have no idea where to begin!!
A couple questions-
where should I be looking to get so much information as you have shown me here? I would like to find out more about Michael DiFalco and Lucia Mariola DiFalco such as who their parents were.
Just 'Google' Ancestry.com and it will give you your country's version - from which you can access other countries. It is expensive unless you want to do a lot of research, but if you don't, then sites like this are a good place to ask others to do 'look-ups' for you.
There are many other sites than can be used in conjunction with each other - some free, some not. Another goo one (free) is 'Free BMD' - Google that too, as I only have the UK link. But I'm certain others here will suggest really good sites to you as well.
