Salemi, Sicily, Grasso

Postby 1sam2leah » 01 Mar 2008, 15:26

Hi

Am trying to find the ship manifest/passenger list for the following person:

Giuseppa or Giuseppina Grasso
Born October, 1909. Emigrated to USA via Boston, MA sometime around 1912 or so. Probably left Sicily thru Palermo. Is there a place in Massachusetts that has these records for people entering into Boston? Thanks.
