Your ftaher appears on line 17 in the ships manifest of his entry into the USA with his family. Go to and his name is Bartolomeo Mazzara and when you find him then click on his name, then ships manfiest (upper left) and then enlarge the picture with the lower right spyglass enlarger that appears and you will see him and his family. They come from Trapani. Unfrotunately there are 88 persons surnamed Mazzara iun the city of Trapani so you will need to know the family by some first name that is known to you or your family as a possible relative. You may wish to consider requesting a CERTFICATO DI FAMIGLIA for his father which will show only his immediate family (your aunts and uncles ) but since they all came together there is no point unless someone was left behid. Go to and insert Mazzzara in the first liune and Trapani in the third line and click CERCA so that you can review all 88 persopnas named Mazzara. Peter
