Hi,

I have been searching for your relative without much luck. There are a couple of problems. The name of the town is Savoia di Lucania. Here is a link.
http://en.comuni-italiani.it/076/084/index.html

The Neustria arrived in NY on June 11,1900 and there was no passenger named Fenico. In fact if you check this site you will see that the last name Fenico does not exist in Italy.

http://www.gens.labo.net/en/cognomi/

The name might have been changed from something else. However, I did a search by town and was unable to find a name that was even close.

In fact, here are the only Fenicos who came through Ellis Island.

1 Fenico, Domenicantonio Mongiano, Italy 33 1880 1913
2 Fenico, Georgio Grotterio 26 1872 1898
3 Fenico, Ignazio Castrogiovanni, Italy 25 1887 1912
4 Fenico, Minadio 27 1869 1896
5 Fenico, Vincenzo Gesualdo 50 1848 1898

Is it possible Giuseppe changed his name?

I have his marriage license and naturalization papers
his nat papers state name as Joseph Fenico and his signature is Guiseppe Fenico - The Natural. papers show the ship and date , I searched the manifest and didn't locate the name either.

I did the same searches and that is why I am asking here , I have been unable to find it.

re no Fenico's in italy ? the ships manifest had 5 other fenico surnames on it so I don't know.

Thanks for checking. I appreciate it.

I think mjones found the right manifest. :wink: This copy might be easier to read. It states that he is from Lucania.

beautiful - thanks for the manifest -
I searched on Ellis Island for Fenico Fenica etc, but didn't find it!

That certainly matches the name , age , town !

I already had the WWI and WWII , but thanks for that one too...

:D

I was looking at the manifest closer
the two people listed below Guiseppe Fenica
are also from Savoia di Lucania
and they all list the same address
206 Mott St " mother mary" on the 8 year old

The surname on the 25 year old is Fiore and that is Guiseppe's mother's last name - and Guiseppe said relative in usa is Uncle .... can't make it out ?

any guesses on what the surname says in the "relatives box "

Looks like it is "my" Joseph Fenico ... Don't know how I missed it 8O
