Help reading an Ellis island ship manifest!

Postby Gaia » 03 Mar 2016, 22:50

Hello everybody, I need a little help to fully understand an Ellis island ship manifest, about my great-great-grandfather Angelo Maniago: he arrived in New York in 1914 and he was going to Toronto, to his brother in law, but there is a word that I can't read and, I guess, it's the name of the exact place he was going to, and that eventually reached as far as I know... But he never came back to told his family what happened next! Anyone could help me? Thanks!!

line number: 32
Name: Angelo Maniago
Cause of detention: b-i-l (brother in law)
Disposition: R.R. to b-i-l Ant(onio) Gnesuta (he actually had a brother in law with that name), Toronto... but what is the word written just before "Toronto"? Can be the name of a place in or around Toronto in early 1900's?

Here is the link to the original manifest page. (When you go to the Detained List at Liberty Ellis... move backward through the images until you come to 286 if this link does not work.)

The original destination appears to read "brother-in-law, Antonio Gnesuta, Toronto, Ont, 96 VanAuley St.
