Can anyone help with 1936 passenger lists from the S.S. Rex?

Over 25 million Italians have emigrated between 1861 and 1960 with a migration boom between 1871 and 1915 when over 13,5 million emigrants left the country for European and overseas destinations.

Can anyone help with 1936 passenger lists from the S.S. Rex?

Postby chazmo » 20 May 2009, 18:47

I am trying to find a passenger list showing my father and grandmother arriving in New York aboard the SS Rex. The names are Antonio Carmen De Santis and Pasqualina Mastroberardino De Santis and were from the province of Campobasso and the city of Castelbottaccio. I have been told the arrival date was October 2, 1936. My father would have been age 6 and my grandmother age 32. Thanks for any help.

Hi;

My Father, Aunt, Grandfather & Grandmother came to New York on the REX in May of 1936 (the day before the Hindenburg blew up) my Dad recalls seeing it circling Manhattan and hearing on the news that night. I Guess Rex Arrival would have been May 6th, 1937 Family name Smith
any chance someone might have the manifest ?
Thx
