Moving to England and USA

Postby GfL » 15 May 2011, 16:48


Does anyone have an Emanuel Potesta who left Genoa to go to England either with his father, Emanuel T Potesta, or to be with his father (both Confectioners) and then left England between 1864 - 1867 to go to the USA. I don't know what port he arrived at or the year but he is recorded as enlisting in the US army in Boston in March 1867 ?

If so, I'd love to talk and compare notes.

Thank you.
