Grandmother's immigration to America

Postby bernie2348 » 06 Aug 2015, 01:34

My Grandmother Marana Trusso came to New York from Tortorici, Sicily between 1910 and 1912 (I think). I can't seem to find exactly what date and what ship when I check on Ancestry.com. There doesn't seem to be a record of her travel on a ship's registry.

A Maria Trusso departed from Palermo on the ship Algeria, but it was in 1907.

Castle Garden has a record of a Mariarosa Trusso, age 16, arriving 19 Jun 1912 on the Oceania. Tortorici is the place of last residence. Check this link to see if this looks like your "Marana".
