Okay you guys.....you going to make me cry. Thank you sunaj and Biff, so very much for finding this information. Giovanna and her children were traveling on the same ship that by Great-grandfather was traveling.

You guys are great. I appreciate all that you have done. Have a great week-end

Mardi

PS... the reason that Maria [Mary] Trombatore was not on the 1900 Census, she married in 1900 at the age of 16

Once again.....thank you for all of your help.
Have a few questions:
Giovanna traveling with children, Maria, Leoluca and Ignazio Trombatore, but Placito Trombatore (husband/father) was not listed???? Could he not have be traveling with the rest of the family?
Also what would the name Ignazio be in English????
Have a very pleasant day!!!
