Hello Fred!
Just for reference, so we don't duplicate information, here's an earlier post on Domenico Bozza
http://italiangenealogy.tardio.com/Foru ... 11365.html

Fred,
Do you have any record of Domenico's parents in the US?
The manifest that Biff posted has Domenico joining his father Michele in NJ.
Have you had any success looking for their records in Italy?
Thank you
Valarie

Hi,

Well, first I was hoping some relative would be out there. But, since no one respond I guess I need to do some searching myself.

Do you have any suggestions on how to start?

Hi,

Again, I would like to thank everyone for their response.

Suanj,

You did a wonderful job of tying everything together with Michele and Pasquale. This is definite a lot of help. Now, I can share this with my father-in-law.

Thanks again!
