boat laborers

Postby ally » 07 Apr 2005, 18:07

I am trying to find out alittle about my grandfather's brother Salvatore Santacaterina. I hip the ellis site and notice there are numerous Salvatores listed as employees of various boats. I do not know the boats name on which he worked other then his name and occupation I have little to go on. Is there anyway of finding out which Salvatore would be his brother? I know he was in his 30's around 1922/24 or so. They came from Schio and never traveled to USA to stay with my grandfather or his sister.

thanks,
ally

Do you know what section or hamlet in Schio they originated from?
Have you tried sending for birth/marriage or death extracts from
Schio? Do you have the names of great grandparents? By providing as much detail as possible it will enable others here to help you.
