Help reading ship manifest

Postby dfdemar » 02 Sep 2016, 21:59

I hope this is the correct forum for this question.

On the attached ship manifest is the entry for my GGF Giuseppe De Mare. He is on line 9. I am trying to read what is in box 16. I believe it lists an address and his brother's name but I can't make it out. Can anyone help?

Thanks. Looks like they spelled his name wrong in the Ellis Island database so his name comes up as 'Matalo' instead of Natale when searching. Any chance you can make out what's in box 16? Looks like he may have also been on his way to see a brother.

Natale is going to his brother, Nicodemo, in Pittsburgh.
Looks like 415 West 27 St.

You can request a text correction via the "Annotations" tab.

In this case they might not be willing to change the "o" at the end to "e". Still, for the most part they have been good about accepting corrections.
