born 23 May 1820 S. Lorenzo, Genova
Did he emigrate to U.S. before 1844? How do I find out?

Here is a possible Naturalization card for one Antonio Pistone, seaman...
Naturalized in 1844... in NYC

Thanks, Tessa.
I have his naturalization record and the US Census for 1860 and 1870. What I am looking for, is his connection in Italy. There is a record with an almost matching birth date in Genoa, gives his father's, mother's, and brother's names, but how do I know this is the same man? I can't find his name on any ships' manifests. It would be between 1820 (his birth), and 1844 (his naturalization in NYC) Any other ways I might tell this is "my" Antonio Pistone?

Looking at the naturalization card it appears he is a seaman.
AND... on this Civil War Draft Registration List (June 1863), he is identified as a Sea Capt., foreign born, and currently "At sea"...
You may find him on Crew lists. It would certainly help to identify the ship he captained...
Possibly shipping records in Maine for that time?

Not sure if this will help... NARA holdings... Bureau of Marine Inspection and Navigation 1774-1973

Here is a link to the Immigrant Ships Transcribers Guild site. They have some very early passenger lists. Maybe you will find something there.

Hi,
for bad luck, the San Lorenzo della Costa ( hamlet of Santa Margherita Ligure town, in Genova province) birth records are on line.... but starting from 1838!http://www.antenati.san.beniculturali.it/v/Archivio+di+Stato+di+Genova/Stato+civile+della+restaurazione/San+Lorenzo+della+Costa/Nati+battesimi/
regards,

Tessa, thanks for those sites. I will check them out.

to suanj, thanks for trying. Any possibility the records go back farther but haven't been put on line yet? I will keep checking the URL.

Hi,
however abt San Lorenzo... I read on this webpage
https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/2:2:34ZG-BPR
so San Lorenzo, Genova is the Church San Lorenzo in Genova town, and no San Lorenzo della Costa, as I thinked and wrote in my previous post... I was wrong...
