BOUCH - Please can anyone do me a big favour?

Postby carolinechurch » 24 Jan 2010, 21:30

Not an Italian question, but I'm a bit stuck as I don't have a USA Ancestry subscription and am very 'poor' at the moment and wonder if someone could please look these up for me?
I have two BOUCH brothers who went to the USA from Dublin:

Joseph John Storey BOUCH b 1892 Dublin shows up on NY passenger lists.

William Henry BOUCH b 1895 Dublin.
1. Petition for naturalisation New York city
2. New York passenger lists (shows up twice, and returned to Liverpool in 1926)
3. WW1 draft card - Armstrong, Pennsylvania
Then there are several possibilities in 1900, 1910 and 1920 census records for Armstrong and Allegheny, Pennsylvania.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, and obviously any reciprocal lookups in the UK are offered!

He was born in Napoli around 1792 and arrived in London before 1812 with his brother Saverio CIACCIA, where they married sisters Ann and Jane FURNEAUX. He switched between CHURCH and CIACCIA all his life, which has made it difficult enough to pin him down. I want to find his origin in Italy.

I was unsure of his arrival date in the USA, so of course it can't be him.
I get so little info to go on when searching without a subscription!

Your help is always so much appreciated Valarie.

Hey Caroline!
I'm glad we could find a few records.
No luck finding any records in the NYC databases at IGG
http://www.italiangen.org/
No recent obituaries in NY for a possible relative of William and Josephine.
Please let us know if you get any leads!
