Ok another question if I may. My maternal Great Great granmother Floreance Vito was married to Jim or James Vito. She had her Mother Carmela Digora living with her, I see it on a Census, but I am unable to find a manifest, what do you suggest? She also had a sister Angelina (Floreance). I have been to Ancestry.com and ellis island. I think I am doing something wrong though becasue I have hit a dead end. Teach me oh wise ones :lol:

I found a manifest but the image it pulls up is not correct. This is the text version. Age is not correct according to the census, but it may be a relative, and if we can see where they're traveling to it may or may not be useful.

Yes, Laura, I think those are correct.

Looks like Florence's children were born in NY on the 1920 census...
(note: in 1930 Florence's daughter Mary indicates she was
born in Kansas).


No luck finding Carmela (1845) & daughters Florence (1882)
& Angelina (1888) in New york in 1910.
That census may help sort out the last name.

Thanks for posting the manifest vj. Doesn't look like a fit. She's going to husband Agostino Marrocco at 240 Elizabeth St.

Ok yes according to my grandmother, Florence (her grandmother) was married to a NY police officer who was shot and killed, she then remarried Jim Vito had Marie Vito (Cicconi) and the Lena or Carmel that you see is actually thier younger daughter Carmelena Vito (Papalordo). So unfortuatly no one knows the name of the police officer, if I had his name then I could probably find Her madein name. I really wish I could find that 1910 census !!! And boy did they butcher the 1930 census!!! Jim Beto ect. Are we able to see a 1940 census ??

Hi!

I live in Liguria, north-Italy....

If we find Florence's last name we can search in this database for her first marriage in NYC:

Household Members: Name Age

[img=http://img339.imageshack.us/img339/57/valentinisilvio1910censtr8.th.jpg]


In 1930 census she declared her marriage at 18, so possibly she married on 1904/1906....
Could be "your" Angelina?


Laura :D
