It could be that the first name on the ship's manifest was wrote wrong? Because in effects a Giovanni aka John Miraula was in 1930 census of Los Angeles CA as a well Damiano Miraula and by the Death record:


John Miraula

California, Death Index

Name: John Miraula
Event Type: Death
Event Date: 17 Apr 1946
Event Place: Los Angeles, California, United States
Birth Date: 07 Jun 1870
Birthplace: Other Country
Gender: Male
Father's Name: Miraula
Mother's Name: Filpi

the mother maiden name is the same on Damiano birth act...
the arrival that I found and the ship's manifest could be abt right Damiano....

yes I can confirm that the Giovanni/John Miraula born in Piana Degli Albanesi ( ex piana dei greci) on 7 jun 1870 #193 was Damiano's brother; here the birth act of Giovanni Miraula

and Giovanna Miraula was really the sister of your Damiano Miraula and Giovanni/John Miraula
Giovanna Miraula was born in Piana degli Albanesi ( ex Piana dei Greci) on 20 mar 1876 #106 daughter of Nicolò Miraula 37 old, farmer and of Vincenza Filpi
here the Birth act:
https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.3.1/T ... ,353029402
so on the ship's manifest Damiano first name was wrote Domenico... :shock:
Giovanna and Damiano arrived in USA on May 6th, 1898; the ship name was: Scindia (1890) ...

both joining at Giovanni brother in New Orleans, LA

My direct descendent is Cecilia Miraula, son of Nicolo, a sister of Domenico/Damiano. She married Salvatore Zito my g-grandfather.

Anyone have further info?

Thanks!
