1920 Census...

"Rosie" the daughter from 1910 is now listed as "Russell" a son in 1920. This is most probably your grandfather Rosolino...

Immigration year is now identified as 1908, which is probably not correct due to Lucy's birth being the last in Italy and she was 9 in 1910 and 19 in 1920... Charles' birth around 1905 in US...
So definitely immigrated after 1901...and before 1906.

Trying to narrow down the immigration year and identify other children who may have traveled from Italy to help in the search...

Thanks Valarie :-D

But I'm having a tough time tracking down the manifest for Antonina and children from about 1902-1906...

Can't find another one for Michele either, though he must have gone back to Italy as we see from the birthdates of the children ;-)

Hi Tessa I believe that is the correct manifest, because Salvatore Centanni travelled with the childrens in jun 1898
