Did your ancestors immigrate to US?
If yes, do you have US documents for your ancestors?

Yes My Grandfather immigrated to the US I found 2 Possibilities in Italians to America Data file,manifest ID # 00083291 April 29 1895 on the ship Victoria from Naples to New York or manifest ID# 00083027 February 17 1898 on the ship Burgundia from Naples to New York Residence Accadia I think it might be because in the US Census some list birth year 1878 or 1875

US Censuses, and US death records are notoriously inaccurate, at times. :?

Can you tell me where in US he lived?
Did he marry here? Spouse's name? Children?

Any details you can provide will help in the search.

EDIT TO ADD:
I have located a WWI Registration Card for a Domenico D'Aversa living in Brooklyn, NY
Occupation is a tailor. Wife's name is "Lizzie"
DOB - 22 Feb 1875
Is this your GF?

Also located in the NYC Marriage Index at http://www.italiangen.org

Contrastano Lizzie Dec 8 1901 Manhattan #21463


You can order the above marriage record if you do not have it :-)

ALSO... looking at the April 1895 ship manifest for the SS Victoria I noticed that many other D'Aversa passengers are also on that manifest... :-)
Passengers # 63, 64, 65, 67 (Domenico), 70 and 75.

Yes that's My Grandfather's WWI Draft registration I also found it.My guess is he came on the ship Burgundia on 2/17/1898 manifest #00083027. I dont recognize any names on the manifest for the Victoria. I'm interested in any information on my Great-grandparents Ben D'Aversa & Rosaria DeRosa. I don't think they left Italy.

Through researching I've found my Grandfather's brothers Rocco, Michele & Generoso, His sisters were Euphemia D'Aversa Paoletta & Maddelena D'Aversa Salvatore. Also found out that my Great-Grandmother Rosaria DeRosa was listed on 1910 census in the household of my Great Aunt Maddelena D'Aversa Salvatore. Still looking for info on my Great Grandparents Ben D'Aversa & Rosaria DeRosa.
