Duvilio does not appear toi be correct but there are 2 other Dante Guerra who meet the age requirement aged 34 and 36. One is from Sicily and the other is from the mainland Italy. Can you furnish any province or his wife's maiden name since all italian woman retain their single name and only the children take the fathers surname. In Italy all records and history is in the town of origin. Peter

There is no Duilio Guerra in the ellisisland database so that may mean he entered the uSA thru a port in the USA other than NYC. So go to www.genealogylookups.com/narchives.htm and file form 81 with NARA which covers all passengers thru all ports coming into the USA. Peter
