I located two trips for a Damiano LaCalamita:

June 8, 1912 and May 1, 1927.

Was detained for LPC.....likely public charge.

do you have a birthdate on Damiano?

Wow This is fantastic You have made my mom's day. She doesn't know much about her father. When he died, they sent over the another son to marry her mom and he wasn't spoke about much.
So this information is great.
