Elisa DiSipio

Over 25 million Italians have emigrated between 1861 and 1960 with a migration boom between 1871 and 1915 when over 13,5 million emigrants left the country for European and overseas destinations.

Looking for information on Elisa/Eliza/Elizabeth DiSipio who emigrated from Italy to Philadelphia in 1911. I'm unable to find any record of her travel.
Thanks!

Nice find, Biff :-D

On the above manifest posted by Biff - the destination listed on the second page (line 17) looks like it had been corrected to: brother - Stefano DiSipio at 911 So. 9th St., Philadelphia.

Thank you! I'll check into it and see if it could be the same person I'm looking for.

I do have a question about the 1912 manifest---it says Luisa is a male. (???) Luisa doesn't seem like a male name to me. Could that be a mistake?

I do believe it is a mistake. You can see that her occupation was listed as "farm laborer" and then written over with a correction of "Domestic" -
I think they just forgot to change the gender :?

If you take a look at the second page that Biff posted, you can see that the two passengers above Luisa were going to the same address. They were "met by ... Gaetano DiSipio"

I had a hard time reading everything on that census--I'm impressed anyone could interpret it. Thanks!

Thanks. The writing is very difficult to read, even large. I'll ask my mother-in-law if there are any Gaetano DiSipio's in the line. Seems like DiSipio is a very common name around Philadelphia.
