Looking for information on Domenico Praiano. Born January 3, 1897 in Cortale, Catanzaro, Italy to Domenico Praiano and Teresa Lucia. Arrived at Ellis Island June 3 1913 on Ship Indiana. Ships manifest lists Galeton, PA as destination.
Thanks in advance for any help.

Hello and welcome! :)

On page two of Domenico's manifest it states that he is going to a cousin, Giovanni Molineri/Molinari in Galeton, PA - Do you know of this cousin?

And did Domenico settle in Galeton, or did he live elsewhere?

Thanks Tessa78 for responding. Domenico had other siblings that came to the US, some earlier, some later, but they lost track of Domenico once he was in the US. Unfortunately nothing else is known of Domenico by the family.

This may be a "long-shot" :-) but based on the pronunciation of the name, his date of birth and his immigration year - this MAY be your Domenico Praiano

1930 Census for Monterey County California, Town of Castroville

DOMINIC PRIANO, age 33 (so born about 1897), single, immigration year 1913.
Living as a lodger with the "Dellanove/Dellanare" family
