Help Finding Info on Ship Manifest

Postby bemontanaro » 18 Apr 2007, 16:14

I have been all over the Ellis Island site and I cannot find an entry for my great-grandfather, Ludovico Montanaro. He picked up his sister, Maria, and his cousin Antonio from the Ellis Island, but I can't find a record for him. He went by Louis after he arrived, but he did report his name as Ludovico when he picked up his sister and cousin. His WWI draft card had his name reported as Lodico. Any help/advice would be great.
