Boston Manifest

Postby KrazyZia » 07 Nov 2005, 09:31

Hello everyone!

I've begun collecting papers for dual citizenship via Father-Grandfather bloodline. My grandfather Peppino Raffaele Brunetti was born October 3, 1911 in Casalvecchio Di Puglia, Provincia Di Foggia. He, my grand-uncle Mateo Brunetti, and my great-grandmother Maria Brunetti (DeLoia is her Maiden Name) traveled together from Naples to Boston sometime between 1915 - 1917. I believe that would put them on the CANOPIC, but I have not found any Boston ship lists yet. I would love to see this proof of their travel.

Does anyone have access to this information?

I am searching for the ship manifest for the SS Canopic. I am looking for my grandfather, Giambattista Ricci. The ship arrived in Boston 05/12/1908 sailing from Naples.

Any help you can give me will be much appreciated.

Hello and welcome to the forum.....lots of great help here at ItalianGenealogy!!

However, could you start your own thread with this topic, that way, posters can keep the two families and research separate, and avoid any confusion.....Thanks!!
