Alicia - Could this be Beniamino?

Postby johnnyonthespot » 02 Mar 2010, 12:38

So, I stumbled upon this database ("Data Files Relating to the Immigration of Italians to the United States, created, ca. 1977 - 2002, documenting the period 1855 - 1900") at NARA online:

http://aad.archives.gov/aad/record-deta ... 310,608311

and found this interesting record:

Field Title Value Meaning
Last Name PASSARO PASSARO
First Name BENIMINO BENIMINO
Age 032 age 32
Sex M MALE
Occupation LABR LABORER
Literacy U UNKNOWN
Country of Origin 001 ITALY
City/Town of Last Residence U U
Destination City/Country NEW YORK NEW YORK
Transit and/or Travel Compartment S13 Staying in the USA [Transit]; Steerage [Travel]
Manifest Identification Number 00082145 82145


Not a lot of info here, but maybe NARA can provide the actual manifest based on the "Manifest Identification Number"?

Never mind - I found the manifest at NARA and it's the same guy we've been looking at, Beniamino. I thought the different spelling in the index might indicate a different person.

Sorry!
