My italian uncle prisoner during the World War II

Postby chaika » 29 Sep 2011, 14:59

Hi, I'm looking for my uncle Simula Angelo (date of birth 1899? in Alghero (SS)- Sardinia), who worked as a fireman on board of cargo ships from Genoa (Town when he lived) to all over the world. I found a passengers-crew list of Ida Vessel departed from MArsiglia and arrived at Brownsville (Texas) in 1938. Later in the period (1939-1945)I knew he was detained at Montgomery County Court House in New York. Have you any information and documents/photos about these years of imprisonment?
Thanks a lot! Have a goodtime:)

Are you saying he was held as a prisoner of war? If so, I would have expected him to be shipped to one of many internment camps; there were at least a couple of them in New York State however I cannot locate any in Montgomery County.
