Don't know if you have this manifest...

Possibly for Giuseppe - arriving November 1892 on Montebello to Port of New Orleans...
Age 25 (born about 1867)
These dates agree with the 1920 Census Laura found for you! :-)
Not much other information here...

WOW....You guys are just awesome.
pink67 (Laura): Thank you so much for finding the 1900 and 1920 Census.
On the 1900 Census that was my Grandfather's brother Jack, with his family. Also the ship Bolivia, Jack and his family arrived. My Grandmother was also on the Bolivia with Jack and his family.
1920 is My Grandparents and their children. My mother was Josie (5). I truly appreciate you looking and finding them.

Tessa78: Thank you for my Grandfather's ship he arrived on.

P.S. Now I know on the 1900 Census Caterina [Catie] was not born yet, she was born in October of 1900.
How you guys fround them with the Surnames spelled so badly..Maybe you will come across the 1910 Census.

Again, I can not thank you enough.....Have a Blessed day.
Mardi

You're very welcome Mardi :D

Also the ship Bolivia, Jack and his family arrived.


I believe this information is incorrect... If you look at the arrival manifest for Giacomo/Jack you'll see that he was travelling alone, in fact I found the arrival manifest for his wife, children and possilbe Giacomo's siblings?

15 july 1898

Mannina Giovanna, age 29, female, married, from Corleone to New Orleans to join her husband Giacomo Calamusa, travelling with her child Antonina age 2 female and Caterina age 4 female. She was travelling also with Calamusa Lucia age 19 female, single and Calamusa Vito age 17 male, single:

Familysearch.org has online the church records for Corleone,
this is the baptism act (in latin) for Caterina Calamusa, daughter of Giacomo Calamusa and Giovanna Mannina:

Baptism act number 347

I'm not good with latin translation but shortly the act says that Caterina was born on the day 6 august 1892, baptized on the day 10 august 1892, daughter of Jacobus (latin version of the name Giacomo) Calamusa and Joanna (latin for Giovanna) Mannina. The baby was named Maria Catarina. Godfather was Giuseppe Calamusa, godmother was Leoluchina Calamusa (brother and sister from what I understand)

you can post the image in the proper section of the forum (Translation help) just to be sure about my version :wink:

Pink67 -My fault... You are correct Jack's family did come later. He was on the same ship as my Grandmother You found my Grandmother ship back in Sept, 2008. He name was poorly misspelled, she was traveling with her mother (who was using her maiden name of Ferrara): My Grandmother's maiden name was Trombatore

Corleone's Church records are online on Familysearch.org, being church acts they are in latin, This is (I think) the baptism act for Maria Trombatore:

Baptism act number 18 - Year 1884

Trombaturi Maria, daughter of Vincenzo and of Giovanna Ferrara was baptized on the day 10 january 1884 in the church of San Martino in Corleone. Godparents were Vincenzo Vecchio and Luisa Bartolotto.

Laura, yes that is my Grandmother Maria. On my Family Tree, I have her birthdate as being January 10, 1884, could it be that I have the wrong birth date....is there a birth certificate on her. Thank you for finding this for me.
Also guess there is nothing on the 1910 Census on the Family.
I do appreciate all and everyone's help.

You have the correct birth date, the babies were baptized as soon as possible (also in the same day of their births) just to freed/remove them the "original sin" and not leave them in the "limbo"

Laura.....thanks for letting me know about birth date and date she was baptized.

pichu2001: I apprecate you finding the Calamusa's for me. I have a question on our Genealogy I have Maria Caterina LoBello......is this the way it is spelled in the USA or I need to change it to Caterina di Bella, the way it is spelled on research, that you did. Thank you for finding such great information. If it weren't for all of you (Laura, Tessa78 and pichu2001) I would not have any of my families roots of where it all begain. Thank you all...
Have a Blessed day!!!

pichu2001: Thanks you kindly for the info on Calamusa and Trombatore...I tried to read the Italian Census I reconized the name Calamusa, but that was about it.
On the subject of Calamusa .... Marchione [Melchiorre] Calamusa married Maria Caterina LoBello....would they happen to have information on him. I know he was born in Calatafimi, Province of Trapani, Sicily all I have is 1834 and died January 14, 1924, Corleone, Province of Palermo, Sicily Other Children they had were . Brigida Calamusa who married Salvadore [Sam] Russo. Also, Josephine Calamusa, I believe both of these stayed in Corleone and also died there.

Also, guess there is nothing on the 1910 Census on Giuseppi [Joseph] Calamusa Family.
I do appreciate all and everyone's help.
