When searching for records, please keep in mind that the correct spelling of your name is almost certainly "Di Vito" and not "Divito". This can make a big difference with many search engines.

If both of these Military Registration Cards belong to your Giuseppe Divito, you may have to look in both Northampton County PA and New York for his naturalization records. According to his 1920 in the Bronx, he naturalized in 1919. No naturalization notations on his 1901 manifest.

If you haven't done so already, I would strongly suggest you give the National Archives a shot. The National Archives is both an inexpensive and fast way to obtaiin naturalization docs; unfortunately for many parts of the country, NARA only holds naturalization records from the federal courts. Start here https://eservices.archives.gov/orderonl ... chives.gov and click Order Reproductions, then Immigration & Naturalization Records. There is no charge unless they find a record and only a very reasonable charge if they do ($7.50 for non-certified, $22.50 for certified copies).
