Could you be a bit more specific in what your research goals are?

Are you searching for relatives in the USA or Italy? Do you have and first/last names? Birthyears? Siblings, children and where in the US the settled?

It definitely helps to have a bit to start with! :D Just makes researching easier and can save lots of time on "wild" searches.

The husband's name is Angelo, the wife's name is Rosa. They had two girls in Italy before Emigrating to the US - Mary and Edith. They were here when their son was born in 1901. They came through Ellis Island. Angelo came first, followed a couple of months by Rosa, Mary and Edith. They settled in Boston where they lived until they died. Rosa gave birth to a total of 11 children, but lost one during childhood.

I would like enough information to be able to continue searching. I don't know middle names (if applicable), or dates of birth, or maiden name, or parents, or how many siblings. Angelo and Rosa are my paternal grandmother's parents.

Hi vj, :P

The Castle Gardens transcriptions are obviously better... who knows what the Ellis Island transcription is for this manifest...

I will try to locate this record...

Or it could be ... that this manifest does exist on the Ellis Island data base... but just wasn't transcribed... will let you know shortly...

Maria

Hi vj,

You've found jennknitter a valuable document here!! She just needs to confirm it...

This record certainly opens a few doors here...

vj wrote:Hi Maria!
I can find records of the Werra for this date on Ellis in a name search
(first name M, last name C), just not these folks...
Appears they may be travelling with a brother (girls are 'nieces')
Thanks! Valarie


Children listed are
.. Ida (could be Editta or Edith....) and the other sister is Maria...

I do not see the words nieces anywhere... but the word "children... "

Hmmm.. the Castle Gardens transcribers actually made an error...!

This Rosa Alfieri (?) is married to an Angelo Castaldini... at 16 North Square...

Looks like a really good manifest to me....
:P

Not sure if this name "Alfieri??" is a maiden name... or a given name....

Can you make out this name??

Maria :P
