Eugene Bianchi DOB 1864 was my Grandfather I know he had a falling out with his family in Northern Italy/Tuscany area and Emmigrated to the US when he was a "young man" he lived most of his life in Oakland California with my Grandmother Rosalia Pipitone Bianchi, they had four children Elivia, Eugene, Rose and Frances (my mother). I am currently trying to obtain our family records to see if I can find more information. I am attempting to find info for him at the Ellis Island Website and the Mormon Church Website but it is hard to determine who is who since I am not sure of where exactly he lived prior to emmigrating. I have found info regarding his wife, my grandmother at Ellis Island and in the 1930 Census. Eugene Bianchi is listed in this Census too. I believe he died a few years later. Any information regarding his origins or family will be greatfully accepted.
There are 2 Eugenio Bianchi coming into the USA in 1887 and 1888 and were aged 25 and 21, respectively. Both came on the same ship La Champagna out of Le Havre and the 25 year old was listed as a Framer and the 21 as a minor but neither is listed with a town of origin in Italy. Their birth year by subtracting arrival dates are 1862 and 1867 which differs from your birth date. What steps have you alrerady taken to find the town of origin, You don't say???? so why reinvent the wheel. Peter

I found Eugene Bianchi and family in the 1920 and 1930 Federal Census in Oakland, CA. I also found a ship's manifest that I believe is him. The information follows:
Name: Eugene Bianchi Arrival Date: 15 Oct 1888 Age: 21 Gender: Male Port of Departure: Le Havre, France Destination: New York Place of Origin: Italy Ship Name: La Bourgogne Port of Arrival: New York Line: 1 Microfilm Roll: 526 List Number: 1407
Do you have Eugene's Death Date? If not, do you know where he is buried? If you do, call the cemetery and ask for his death date and then you can try to write for his death certificate. If the informant filled it out properly, the town in Italy might be listed.
Do you have Eugene's Naturalization papers? If not, do a search on google for Naturalization records in Oakland, CA and get the number and address of either the Archives or the Prothonotary Department. Ask them how much to do a search and get the records and hopefully the town's name will be on there.
Dear Witcheyes I already gave her the information and you are interfereing at this point since she knows what to say.
SUEWELLS THIS IS TO WARN YOU THAT THIS PERSON TRISDH IS A COMMERCIAL GENEALOGIST SEEKING CLIENTS AND DO NOT PAY HER ANY MONEY AND DO NOT SUCCUMB TO HER POSTINGS SHE ADVERTISES BENEATH HER NAME BUT POSES AS A 'VOLUNTEER'..BE ATTENTIVE. PETER
Peter, Thanks for the info and taking the time to respond to my post. I mentioned in my initial post that I have been to the Ellis Island Site, and the Mormon Site. At the Mormon Site I found Eugene Bianchi on the 1930 Census. I appreciate your resonse but not your reinventing the wheel comment. I didn't come to this website to get into discussions about my expertise or extreme lack thereof, or my motivations. This is my third day of this quest so I am beyond Newbie. How about Pre-Pre-Newbie. Thanks again.
Peter, Okay lets start again. I am hoping that I can 1. obtain this information from records my aunt left but I haven't been able to get my hands on them yet. 2. I thought that if I could find the ship's manifest I could get the information there as I did for my Grandmother who emmigrated from Sicily. So I guess I am looking for a way to obtain this information with as little expense as possible. Thanks for your help and concern. Sue

I apologize! I'm only here to help. I volunteer at a Family History Center several days a week. I'm trying to let people know there are other avenues that can help with their research.

Peter, No I still haven't narrowed it down. I am at work now 8:40 am Central Time here in Houston so I have to pick and choose times to respond to e-mails. I am going to have to set out a block of time the first of next week to work on this, so any directions you might be able to give me would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Sue
