That is my greatgrandfather. But I can't find anything past his arrival here. Except for his WWI draft registration which on Ancestry.com when I try to pull up the view of the original it is a blank page.

Off the subject....why did all the website switch over to Italian...I need to switch back to the English language. How do I switch back? I don't know how to translate...

Possible previous trip for Carmelo Ciucio?

Note age is 33 which means yob is about 1871 which does match VJ's manifest.

You’re right, this is a tough search on ancestry

Is this your post from the ancestry message boards?

My great-grandfathers name was Carmine Curcio sometimes spelled Ciucio
or Cuicio he was an immigrant from Italy and moved here to be with his wife and
his inlaws in Pittsburgh.
His wife's last name was Cippola and her father was Giuseppe.
Carmine was buried in St Mary's Cemetery Sharpshill, Sharpsburg, PA near his
daughter Josephine Chirico.
His wife (first name unknown) died between 1914-1920.
His three children were put into orphanages in Pittsburgh.
The names of his children were Josephine, Joseph and Clara.


There is a private tree with several of your names on ancestry, yours?

Name: Guiseppe Cipolla Birth: 1866 - Italy
Name: Carmelo Ciucio Birth: 1875 - Italy
Name: Josephine Curcio Birth: 1907
Name: Joseph Curcio Birth: 1908

Thank you all!
I found all that information on ancestry.com also. Because of the transcription errors on that website it makes it very hard to find people. What I need is information after 1920 if anyone has that I would greatly appreciate that also
