Is "vj" Still Around? Looking for Something You Found for Me!

Postby BlackHeartNY » 21 Jun 2015, 07:30

Don't laugh, but back in 2009, "vj" was kind enough to find my Grandmother and Uncle's Ship's Manifest, which somehow went missing when I went looking for it. For the life of me, I can NOT find this Manifest on ellisisland.org. I remember "vj" telling me that she used wildcards to find my Grandmother's name, "Anna Barba," but these wildcards no longer work on ellisisland.org. and when I try to search my Grandmother's name or my Uncle's name, it does not bring up this Manifest at all! The info I've attached is from my original post back in 2009 and what I'm looking for, but can't find. I would so appreciate any help, and thank you!

"vj' hasn't been on for a couple of years. Miss her; she was one of the best.

Here's a link to the record on ancestry.com

If you do not have a subscription to ancestry, go to the gold form on Steve Morse's site.

http://stevemorse.org/ellis2/ellisgold.html

Type the last name"Falcone"
First name "Luisa"
Ship name "Canada"
Year of arrival "1912"
Month of arrival "August"

There will be one result. Click on that result for the ship manifest. Anna and Raffaele will be on the bottom of that manifest page. You will be linked to the record on the new Ellis Island site. Images 853 and 854.
