Looking for information on Lercara c1905, Alia

Postby svick » 26 Jul 2010, 21:05


I am researching my GF's history. So far I know the following:

Born 1905, Alia, Italy
Came to states - 9mar21 on SS San Rossore, but looks like he and his father were turned away.
Returned to states 21aug21 on SS Guglielmo Peirce. He was 16

His father might have been Francesco Lercara and was 50 in 1921 (according to ship manifest).

His GF might have been Biago Arrigo also from same town.

Can you add any additional pieces to my puzzle?

Hi and welcome to the forum,

I am posting the manifest for reference.

They were not turned away in May. Line through the name means they did not sail. Francesco aged 2 years in 2 months. :D

Manifest says wife is Francesca Barruso
