The people of the site have always been able to help me in the past and I hope that this time they will be able to as well. The problem I am having is with handwriting on two passanger lists on the Ellis Island Website.
The first is listed under the name Maria Antonia Seminatore she arrived December 1st 1910. She is located on line 28 of the passanger list. I am not sure of the first name of the sister she came over to stay with in NY I know everything but the first letter of the first name, which is very important that I find out. Any guesses? Mine is Farina or Tarina but I can not find a record of either one.
The next problem I am having is on one of Maria Antonia's sister's lists. The name of the sister is Rosa Seminatore but she is listed under the name Rosa Seminatere because the transcriber missread the list. She arrived on March 4, 1911. And is located on line 14 of the list. Her line is difficult to read because it is crossed out. On her list she claims that she will be staying with her sister Antonia(as listed above she didn't use the name Maria because there is another sister with this name) The problem I am having is that I can not read Antonia's last name ( her married name).
Well I hope someone will be able to help me, thank you for your time and kindness.
-for Rosa will be staying with her sisters Antonia and Vincenza(first name other sister...
-for Maria Antonia " Mine is Farina or Tarina but I can not find a record of either one."..also I not able, perhaps Sarina(diminutive of Sara) but sure not Farina(is an italian surname) or Tarina..
Thank you suanj.
Vincenza was another sister so that makes sense. I am awaiting documents from Castrofilippo, where the family was from. Hopefully when I recieve them I will be able to identify the sister that Antonia stayed with.
Thank you for your help,
