Looking for help on Sierchio Family

Postby Ginasnow » 27 Sep 2010, 21:44

Hello everyone,

I am searching for a ship manifest for my gg-grandfather Gaetano Sierchio born in 1867 in Santomenna, Salerno, Italy. His records state he immigrated in 1887. He made his first trip here alone, and then in 1890 he came with his wife Donata Dicorcia Sierchio, also called Anna (1867), and thier toddler daughter Mary. I am new at this only 3 years in, and would love any help finding them on a manifest. Thank you.

Gina

YES That's her and the baby. WOW. Thank you so much. It was the last thing I was looking for! My search has been so hard as the names have been botched over time. Thank you again so very much.

Gina, I'm so glad we could help!
Actually, on the Castle Garden search site Marianna's surname is spelled correctly :wink:
