Need help finding Ship Manifest - Ellis Island

Postby gemellua » 08 Oct 2014, 17:09

Last year my pc crashed (before I could back up my genealogy files). I have been slowly replacing them. However, with Ellis Island updating their site, I have lost all the ship manifest I had stored with them. One in particular is for two sisters – Anna and Giuseppa Loiacono. I know they arrived at Ellis Island in 1907 from Terrasini, Sicily. Stated they were on their way to reunite with their father Salvatore in St. Louis, MO. I have tried alternate spellings of the surname etc. Can’t find them. If I remember correctly the second page of the manifest states they were living with their mother Rosa Randazzo.

This new form is difficult to navigate. Before, it gave you options for alternative spellings. I even tried searching using Ancestry – nothing. I would appreciate some expert help! Thanks.

Thank you for the additional information...

Unfortunately, I have not been able to find the manifest ...
I have checked on Ellis Island site, Family Search and Ancestry (in case they did not arrive NY)

Are you sure about the 1907 arrival? Did they travel with anyone else?

I will continue to search...

Hi Marty, :D

I saw that manifest, but discounted it because the birth year is off by 8 years, a considerable amount...

EDIT TO ADD:
I just took a closer look at the manifest you referenced above, and Giuseppa was marked DEPORTED, after being discharged from the hospital.
