Help reading manifest

Postby koch13 » 12 Mar 2008, 21:53

I am trying to read who my great-grandfather was joining according to his ship manifest which I've attached (line 4 Giovanni Pasquali). I know it says Loretto, Michigan and he's joining his sister, but I'm not sure about her name. It looks like Louise Nolfanski to me, but I can't find any info on anyone by that name. Also, I'm not sure what it says before Loretto (looks like boa 35). Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi!
One opinion
On line 4 (counting lines down from the top)
I see 'friend? Domenico Martinelli'
Box 35
Valarie

Domenic Martinelli?

Loretta, Michigan...

I believe the sister you are looking at is for line #5

I agree. He is going to his friend Dominic Martinelli. The sister refers to the next line.

I've been staring at this for a year and never thought about that!! I guess what threw me off was the bracket-like marks on the lines below that made it look like they were grouped together. Thank you for all your help!!
