Postby jonbruno » 05 May 2009, 05:24

I saw on previous posts that you have images of passenger manifests from the SS Rex

I was looking for my grandmother's record

Name: Martha Mary Bruno
-Born February 9, 1917 in Bitritto, Bari Italy
-Arrived in New York from Napoli on SS Rex on February 15, 1940

Any help or info on where to find images of the passenger index is appreciated.

Thnak you

She was travelling under her maiden name, it's correct because here in Italy women keep their maiden name for all their life, even if married.
