Ellis Island Search

Postby SAGE » 22 Aug 2009, 21:48

A relative of mine went to America, but there is no record at Ellis Island, his
name is Silvio Augusto Spagnolo went to america in 1927 and his wife Maria in 1928. No records anywhere.
I have found there death notice.
What other records can I search.

Here's a 1927 manifest, but this Silvio was in IL from 1920-1927
Do you have his birth date, his destination and his wife's maiden name?
Thanks, Valarie

Thanks Valarie, I do not have his earlier manifest.
I did not know he went to america twice.
I think they moved around a bit, he ended up in Philadelphia?.
