Postby London82 » 03 Aug 2014, 01:39

My ancestor came to New Orleans from Italy with his father in 1904 ,
His name is Giuseppe Murana he was only 4 ,
His fathers name was Antonino Murana
I have been unable to find them on any census records do you know why this is??

1904 manifest shows a Giuseppe Murania travelling with his mother Lucia Agozzino, joining father/husband Antonio in Plaquemines Parish.

There is a public tree on Ancestry by SMurana with quite a bit of information and photos but no census information. Is this your tree?

1940 census for Giuseppe and family. Name spelled as Moranna.

http://interactive.ancestry.com/2442/m- ... turnRecord

Still looking for the 1930 census but I found this 1930 census
for a Joseph Morale age 28, a banana carrier at the wharves
Wife Rosie, age 27 and son Anthony 8 months old born about 1929 in Louisiana. Immigration year is 1927, however. Pretty coincidental that wife is Rosie and son is Anthony born about Jul 1929.

You're welcome!

Still checking to see if I can find any earlier census records.

The address in 1940 was 2224 Terpsichore and, according to the census, they were at the same address 5 years earlier in 1935.

Unfortunately, they were not there 10 years earlier in 1930; a different family is at that address on the earlier census.
