I just noticed your Family tree on Ancestry. It states the names of Pasquale's parents as Giacinto Venditti and Lucia ???

I looked at the manifest you have sourced on the page - the one for 1907
If this is the correct manifest, Pasquale was leaving his mother "Lucia Vizzoca" in Capracotta, Campobasso...

Have you tried writing to the comune of Capracotta to request birth records for Pasquale and/or his parents? Capracotta is in the Province of Isernia today (maybe it was part of Campobasso in the past?)

Address:
Ufficio dello Stato Civile
Piazza Stanislao Falconi, 3
86082 Capracotta (IS)
ITALY

Write your request in Italian...

Hello. Thank you so much for the information. I am unsure of the names of Pasquale's parents. Family information says his father was Giacinto; the incorrect manifest led me to believe his mother's name was Lucia. I located the naturalization papers and discovered that my Pasquale was the one who came over on 6/25/1913, leaving behind grandmother, "Maria" and meeting Uncle Guiseppe Capuano. Thank you for the "Capuano" information? I could not figure that out at all!

I'm still looking for better information about his parents. Thanks again for the information.
