I am still trying to trace my great grandfathers family and to date have had no luck in Australia through the archives here. Name Giuseppe Amendola born 1858, so I am assuming that he may have been fishing before he reached Australia in 1888. He was listed as a fisherman here,but I am unable to locate any form of record.I got this information fron the voters list here
Ive taken the earliest possible age as 18 which would mean looking around 1876. Have located the largest population of Amendolas around Napoli and then have looked at Calabria.
Are there any lists kept of fisherman during this time?
If you point me in the right direction I am happy to do the research and emailing.
Once again thank you for your help
I believe that this record could be interesting for you:
AMENDOLOR BANTOLO ( Bartolo right) PASSENGER Labourer
AMENDOLOR GUISEPPE PASSENGER Labourer
that could be Amendola Giuseppe; better: from direct reading of original ship manifest is Giuseppe Amendola http://mariners.records.nsw.gov.au/1889 ... 94ori8.gif
I believe they was brothers... Bartolo ( or Bartolomeo: complete first name)is no in australian voters list, so maybe back in Italy.. maybe they coming from Amalfi, near Napoli... just a my idea...
