I am on a quest to trace may Sicilian heratage after a recent visit to Sicily. I have had some success thus far. I have been able to find my great Grandfathers imigration papers online and have requested his military papers from Sicily. I was also able to find his sisters papers, and his brother in-law's imigration papers. (His sister married his wife's brother, and they both came over as a married couple in 1913). The problem is that i can not find anything on my great grandmother. She was born 6/13/1886, i believe she if from the same town as my great grandfather, (collesano), My great grandfather came over in 1906 as single man, there first child was born in 1910. So she had to come over before 1910.
i have her madien name as Ignazia Ippolito or Agnes Ippolito, Her married name Ignazia Quattrochi.
Ignazia Polito arrival: First Name: Ignazia Last Name: Polit Ethnicity: Italy, Italian Last Place of Residence: Collesano, Sicily Date of Arrival: Mar 27, 1910 Age at Arrival: 24y Gender: F Marital Status: [b]M Ship of Travel: Duca Degli Abruzzi Port of Departure: Napoli Manifest Line Number: 0010[/b] with husband Liborio Quattrocchi ( son of Antonino in Collesano) http://www.ellisisland.org/search/shipM ... 0069%2ETIF suanj
Suanj, that can't be them, I found their brother and sister on ellis island ( Antonio ippolito, and agnes quattrocci) they came over in 1913 from Palermo. It wouldnt make sense for my great grand parents to sail from Napoli 3 years earlier. I also found a solanio quattrocchi ( but when you look at the orginal, it's laborio, on Ellis island) he came from Palermo in 1906.

abt Liborio Quattrocchi and Ignazia Polito trip of 1910; on the second page of ship's manifest, Liborio line 9, was already in USA from 1907 to 1908... when you say "solanio quattrocchi" you referring abt this ship's manifest:
First Name: Silario Last Name: Quattrocchi Ethnicity: Italy, Italian South Last Place of Residence: Collesano Date of Arrival: Jul 12, 1906 Age at Arrival: 20y Gender: M Marital Status: S Ship of Travel: Sannio Port of Departure: Palermo Manifest Line Number: 0016 and reading the original, the first name is Liborio... http://www.ellisisland.org/EIFile/popup ... &line=0016
Liborio Quattrocchi was born on 11 Nov 1886 in Collesano: Quattrocchi Name: Liborio Quattrocchi City: Manhattan County: New York State: New York Birthplace: Italy Birth Date: 11 Nov 1886 Race: White Draft Board: 92 born in Collesano, Ignazia wife..
if you read the marriage record abt Liborio Quattrocchi and Ignazia Polito,
Liborio parents was: Antonino Quattrocchi and Rosa Culotta
well this same Liborio Quattrocchi married at Ignazia Polito ( birth date: Collesano 14 June 1886) in Collesano on 29 Jan 1910 and both immigrated in USA on Mar 27, 1910.. this trip was the second trip for Liborio..
So ..I believe that they are the right persons... suanj
suanj, the only problem I have is Ignazia's last name. We know that Ignazia had a brother, Antonio and he married, Liborio's Sister, Agnes Quattrocchi. I found both of them on the below manifest. It clearly has his last name as Ipollito. http://www.ellisisland.org/search/viewT ... 0663030020
yes I understand.. both the surnames are in Collesano: Polito and Ippolito.. by the ship's manifest of Antonino Ippolito and Angela (no Agnes) Quattrocchi, both was born in 1889.. I found the her death: NAME: Angela Ippolito BIRTH: 11 Sep 1889 DEATH: Jan 1972 - Brooklyn, Kings, New York, USA CIVIL: New York
you know the birthdate of Antonino Ippolito husband of Angela Quattrocchi?
I found the petition of naturalization : Selected U.S. Naturalization Records - Original Documents, 1790-1974 about Antonino Ippolito Name: Antonino Ippolito Age: 36 Birth Date: 29 Aug 1889 Spouse's Name: Angelina Arrival Date: 1913 Naturalization Date: 7 May 1926 State: New York Court Type: District Court Court Location: Eastern District, New York Naturalization Record Type: Petition for Naturalization
by petition of naturalization: departure 30 may 1913 on the ship VERONA; arrival 15 jun 1913 VERONA ship...
by the ship's manifest that you provided: the arrival was Jun 13, 1913, VERONA ship and the departure from Palermo the 30 May 1913
so he travelled by Ippolito surname...
no doubt that at same birthdate just Antonino Polito was born in Collesano and no a Antonino Ippolito; as a well at the birthdate that you provide abt Ignazia, just Ignazia Polito was born in Collesano; Antonino and Ignazia Polito was sibling, as a well Liborio and Angela Quattrocchi was sibling..
oh my gosh you are the best SUANJ!!!!!!!! Thank you so much for your help. I was wondering how to see if there were anymore children of either (Antonino and Maria Concetta Galluzzo)or (Antonino Quattrocchi and Rosa Culotta)?
for to know the other children of Antonino Quattrocchi .. it should do a deep search, abt all Quattrocchis and Politos born in Collesano and to check the parent's names... it is a bit hard and long search.. here the link of Collesano civil records... https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.3.1/T ... %3D1947613
