I assume you mean which ship he used to get to the USA from Italy to Galveston and not from the USA to France. In any event, NARA (USA entry data of passenger arrrivals) can be searched but in some unindexed passenger lists this may not be possible since Galveston may or may not have passenger lists on microfilm. In anyu event, you will never know if you do not try. Go to and file form 81 with NARA. Look to see if there is an address for Galveston thru If not then NARA (National Archives can be filed in Washington, D.C. Peter
