I am looking for info on my grandparents. Salvatore VITULANO , born 1 Jan. 1894, Place of residence stated at Ellis Island is Manfredonia, Italy. He arrived at Ellis Island on 2 March 1923. Port of departure was Napoli and the ships name was Taormina. His parents names from his SS application are: Michele Vitulano and Antonia Armelotta. My grandmothers name is Annina Maria Paglione, born 23 Nov. 1897, Manfredonia, Italy. Parents names are: Annina M. Paglione and Francesco Paglione. Annina came through Ellis after 1930, so there are no records of her arrival. I do know that Annina had a brother, Matteo who lived in Rhode Island, US.
Thank you very much for any info. Both have passed on as has my mother, so information is tough to find.
You can go to the family history library of the Mormon church nearest your home for the microfilm of the civil records which date from 1809 to 1900. You can start with ellis island records and thenwith the microfilm for all births,marriages and deaths and family composition. If you wish to write for documents in Manfredonia you would need full name and dates or years of birth. Peter
