Manifest help

Postby SimoneTessitore » 27 Nov 2006, 02:15

Hope everyone had a great holiday. I'm here with a new mystery to unravel.

I just found out I had my grandfather's first name wrong so I went in search of a manifest with the right name, Marco Viscuso. I found him on the Regina Italia but his name is lined through. (I don't know how to add the link to the manifest here, sorry). Doesn't this mean he wasn't actually on this ship? And there's a notation at the bottom of the page about the 6 people crossed off. Can anyone tell me what that means?

I can't find him on any other ship.

Thanks
Simone

from: Manifest Markings - A Guide to Interpreting U.S. Passenger
List Annotations

explanation of 'line-outs
--------------------
Marco Viscuso 1921 manifest w/line out
manifest pg 1
pg 2

Does the information on this 1921 manifest look correct for
your grandfather?

Wow VJ, thank you for the link. It will really help me understand what I'm looking at on that 1921 manifest.

And yes, I believe it is him again on the 1929 manifest only for that trip he already had a Visa number.


And where the census document lists P Vetero or Pizzo Vetero this was a church affiliation?

yes, these are the same two listings I found. Also a manifest for his father (I think) Michele Viscuso.

None of this has been confirmed to be the right people, but it all fits.

thanks again, Simone

Hi 2 all....

Like 2 wish one & all a Happy New Year..... :D

I am following this with interest cause I too am a Viscuso.

I'm interested as I like 2 trace my family & relatives etc.

I started my search back in '97 when it appeard on a U.S sit com show & since then my search has escalted. I have since found that most Viscuso's reside in the States & I have written 2 most & recieved replies.

We swap letters,e-mails & photos etc & I have quite a few on my listings.
The majority reside in New York, New Jersey, Houston & are scattered all over the States.

It would B great if U out there would e-mail or PM me as I like 2 get 2 know all of U.

About my background.....

I was born here in Australia my father came from Catinia & my Mother came from Calabria & as 2 when they came out here I'm not certain... :(

I have 2 older sisters with adult married children of their own. I've never been o/seas & will 2 one day soon as my love of my life is there waiting 4 me...& yes she 2 is a Viscuso!!... :D .

Well I guess that's the low down on me thus far..more later....

Am a Viscuso living here in Australia searching 4 other Viscuso's as well world wide. Hope 2 get 2 know some from here
