Bartolomeo Carella

Postby JJCarella » 09 Apr 2014, 22:54

I'm wondering if it's possible to obtain information on my paternal grandfather, Bartolomeo Carella, beyond the three ship manifests I found via Ellis Island. I'd like to determine the reason he made these trips from Bari, Italy to New York in the 1930's. Old photos show him as a "muscle man," possibly working the circus sideshow circuit. Another rumor is that he worked as a translator for the NYPD.

According to the manifest on this 1925 trip, he lists his occupation as "artist" - so the circus work is a real possibility :-)
