An illegible place name appears on more than one passenger list [I hope uploaded], none crystal clear. I have identified a cousin's family members as living at one point in Barra, which in this case is in or around Naples. But the specific birth locations are "San Gio" something. Can anyone help? Thanks, Robin.
The closest to barra (whichis a hamlet on a road to Naples like 711 and a gas station) and tghe nearest thing that resembles the listing is San Giorgio a Cremano which is not close to the spelling listed in your inquiry..so would you please give me the name of the person who arrived and the date and name of the ship so that I can compare lettering of ther manifest and see if there is someone else from the "place". It may be that the name changed since there are hamlets and villages that have names but lost their identity and are a part of larger towns or become a Naples suburb!! or the name has changed since then... =Peter=
Wow, thanks jcat and Peter. I also saw San Giorgio a Cremana, which doesn't quite work, but did NOT find San Giovanni a Teduccio, which seems a good candidate.
Peter, if you want to have another look as you kindly offered, I'd appreciate it, and here is the information:
1. Passenger Amalia Russo, 28, arriving 2 Dec 1904 to NY from Naples aboard the SS Citta di Napoli, Line 12
2. Passenger Amalia Russo [Giogaia], 39, arriving 27 Jul 1915 to NY from Naples aboard the SS America, Line 3. On the second page, you'll see her kids are with her, 3 born in same location, and on the first page her father is living there.
