Perhaps familiarity with Italian Genealogy would have sped things up a bit but for now please read the following website:
www.angelfire.com/ok3/pearlsofwisdom/fr ... earch.html

There are numerous Domenico De Luca arriving at NYC at Ellisisland.org at the turn of the century or did he sail to Panama and go overland to Pacific in order to sail to California??

Any questions please get back to so that we can direct your inquiries to the correct areas. =Peter=

I think Antonio was my GGF's brother. I heard that my GGF's brother was brought to the old Hospital on West cliff drive after an accident at the Cement plant. He died shortly after. Dominic lived to be 105 years old. I wish I would have learned more from him about family history when he was alive. Im trying to find out the Town in Italy he came from?

Yes your are right about the accident. This was my grandmothers first husband. She was widow very young with 2 young children and pregnant when the accident happen. So yes there is a connection. If you would like any information about Antonio side let me know. I will try to see if I can help you find out what town the brothers were from. Who did your grandfather marry. I know my grandmothers sister married a De Luca too.

If we can't find his ship manifest or naturalization records, you may have to order his social security application.
According to this 1950 manifest Domenico De Luca was a US Citizen.
Do you have his naturalization records?

I do not recall my GGF first wife's name, they had 3 children though. Son, Darrol, daughters Eva and Elsie. His first wife died before I was born. He went back to Italy and married again. Brought her back here to Santa Cruz. Her name was Yollanda.
Any other info you find would be appreciated, Thanks again

If this is Domenico's 2nd wife, you may want to also look for her ship manifest (if they were from the same town)
