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.

Deportation

Postby donnawright » 04 Jun 2009, 20:44

Does anyone know where the place is to inquire if someone had been deported. Served in the Army, so says 1920 census and there is a notation on his ellisisland.com record referring to 1935 and another for 1936. Family stories talk about deportation or jail as a choice for him, and he chose deportation.

I may be wrong on this, but I would think that if he had a choice between jail & deportation, the information would be in a court record.

and/or

If he was a naturalized US citizen, the US Citizenship and Immigration Services may have your answer.

Hope this helps!

I would agree with you on a court record, but don't have any idea what court and where. He was on 1920 census and nothing after that. I'll find it somewhere.

In 1920, the census says he was a soldier. I wondered about why he was on that census if he didn't live there anymore, but maybe I'm splitting hairs there. Just because he was "away" doesn't mean he wasn't a resident of that house, I guess. I think I'll check on court records in that area, tho. Elusive guy, this one!
