Need Help Reading Birth Place on Ship Manifest

Postby jantonelli81 » 30 Dec 2010, 15:11

Hi,

My G. Grandmother immigrated form Italy and eventually settled in RI. That is about all I know for sure.

Here is some background info:

Her name is Giovannina De Fusco (or De Fruscio...but I'm not sure that is a surname) (b. abt 1888) My family, including her children , when they were living has said her last name is De Fusco. However, the closest match I can find on the shop manifests is a Giovannina Fusco (b. abt 1886).

Her Husband was form Sant'Ambrogio sul Garigliano. I have not been able to find a marriage cert., but have been told they met and married in the US. With all that being said, I cannot make out the place of birth written on her ship manifest. I retreived this info from ancestry.com , maybe there is another site someone can look at to figure out the location?

Hi Val, happy new year!

I agree with you and it looks like she was going to brother Pasquale at 60(York?) Street, if that's any help.
