Hi, Anita.

Here are a couple immigration records:


Name: Lazzaro Barsuglia
Arrival Date: 21 Oct 1924
Estimated birth year: abt 1874
Age: 50
Gender: Male
Port of Departure: Genoa, Italy
Ethnicity/Race­/Nationality: Italian (South) (Italian)
Ship Name: Duilio
Search Ship Database: View the Duilio in the 'Passenger Ships and Images' database
Port of Arrival: New York, New York
NATIVITY: Italy
Line: 1
Microfilm Serial: T715
Microfilm Roll: T715_3560
Birth Location: Italy
Birth Location Other: s donato
Page Number: 32

His closest Italian relative is his sister Orsola, and he is going to see his wife Assunta. Also, he is living in San Francisco CA, and his sister is living in San Donato, Italy. He must have been visiting her. I believe this to be his immigration record to come here to live:

Name: Lazzaro Barsuglia
Arrival Date: 4 Dec 1902
Estimated birth year: abt 1870
Age: 32
Gender: Male
Port of Departure: Genova
Ethnicity/Race­/Nationality: Italian

Port of Arrival: New York, New York
Line: 5
Microfilm Serial: 15
Microfilm Roll: T715_312
Page Number: 133

In this one he is living in San Donato.



Also a census record, which seeing as you live in CA seems to fit.

Name: Lazzaro Barsuglia
