Domenico Morano took the ship SS Taormina sailed from Naples Oct 04, 1912, arrived in New York Oct. 18, 1912. On the Immagration sheet under calling or Occupation it is stamped ( in hospital discharged # 24-6416-2/11/37) over the words farm labor. Any help what those #'s mean.

Still looking for any family links to this Morano blood line.

Thanks

The # are citizenship certificate numbers most likely starting with C. When and immigrant became a naturalized US citizen the pre-war practice was to put his citizenship certificate on the original manifest to preclude fraud in applying for citizenship by someone other than the immigrant on the ships manifests.

By the way what is your problem with pre 1912 recdords in Italy?? =Peter=

Thanks for the reply Peter. For some reason I have a hard time getting a response from anyone in Monterosso Calabro to answer me.I have sent letters to there but nothing in return. I did find some stuff like the family info listed above on a micro reel, but it would be nice if I could get in touch with someone there. If you have any advice for me im all ears.


Thanks again

Tom

Dear Tom,

I know the village Monterosso Calabro very well, and in fact I own a small home there - part of the original Palazzo Morano. I know Elisabetta La Grotteria, who was the former mayor there. There are many many Moranos and LaGrotterias in town still. I am happy to send photos of the village and the people - I go there 3 or 4 times a year, and have gotten a number of American families also to buy homes there in the ancient part of town (we are all trying to preserve it). Go to www.monterossocalabria.com to see some info, although that website needs many corrections and I am looking for someone to help me out with it. Not many people in town speak English, and my Italian is not good, but there is one gentleman in town who will guide you - Antonio Parisi - who was a special guide in Italy for American Express, and who has a special love for the town and its history. I am happy to get you in touch with him.

Have you tried the films at a Family History Center?

https://familysearch.org/search/catalog ... %20Library

They have records from 1809 to 1910.
