Hello PaulaM :-) Welcome to the forum!

Do you have arrival documents for Serafino and Francesca?

I have found an arrival on SS Bolivia, 1898, for Serafino Campisi, 50 and Antonina Campisi, 20 and Ignazia Campisi, 16.
Very little other information - left from Palermo - going to New Orleans.

T.

Edited: Ignazia is a female...

Yes this is the correct family. I have this same information of Antonino parents (Louis & Sorophia). I'm trying to get more background on the 2 of them. Antonino was born in America but his parents

Your post looks like it wasn't finished???

Antonino's parents born in Italy? Did they immigrate? Do you know their approx. birthdates?

Any details (dates, siblings, etc.) will help.
