US Immigration Ports

Postby DeniseMancuso » 05 May 2016, 02:27

Hello,

My grandfather immigrated from Tiriolo, Italy sometime between 1914-1916 but he did not come through Ellis Island. My dad tells me he thinks that my grandfather came through a port in New Jersey. But I can't find any records anywhere. It's as if he doesn't exist. I'm wondering if anyone knows of any popular ports during that time that he might have passed through?

Thank you in advance!
Denise

Ports of immigration include Philadelphia, Baltimore and Boston, among others.

If you provide us with his name, date of birth and approximate year of arrival (and any other details such as name of wife, where he settled, etc) we can help you in your search. :D
