Hi and welcome to the forum,

The name Tempestosa is very rare in Italy as you can see at the following sites. The name Tempestoso is a little more common, but still rare.

Do you know what town your gggrandmother was from? Can you post the manifest?

Biff,

Is Mathilda traveling with the person above? The three names seem to be linked and they are going to different persons at the same address. The name looks like Nicola Della Mangia. (Mingia, Mongia???)

Hi MJ :D !!

I think they were travelling together. Name appears to be Nicola Della Morgia with last residence Lanciano, another town in Chieti about 7 miles from Fossacesia.

I'm not having much luck finding possibles for Nicola.

Not me either. Found some other Pocettis going to Canada, but no Nicola.
Don't think he came thru NY.

thanks for all the information

Based on the arrival of Mathilda in 1906 at 23 yr old and the fact that her daughter Anna was 2 yr old, i assume, Nicola came in USA in 1904 or 1905 and he was 18 or 19 year old

Based on what i can find it could be :
Berendino Pocetti 1905 19 yr old

Sometimes the birht name and the usual name are not the same

could be Berendino Nicola Pocetti

I would be iterested to see the manifest if somebody can help me.


thanks
