I have identified 2 Salvatore Brisciones who I know are related. One is a son of Pasquale, born in 1908. The other was born in New York in 1916 and died in 1970. Any further information on either of these names would be greatly appreciated. I believe these two men are cousins to each other and the nephews of Angelo.
Some of my research has paid off. I have found descendents of Gabriel Briscione(b circa 1856) I have found ship manifests but cannot confirm if Gabriel is from Contursi. Can anyone help find out where Gabriel originally came from? He or a namesake travelled fairly often. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I am following all the great advice given here, but I have a few questions.
Why do some names appear in certain censuses and not in others? For example Angelo Briscione's family appears in 1930, but I can"t find it in 1920 even though he emigrated in 1910. His brother Pasquale appears in 1920. but the family is not listed in 1930 even though I found marriage records for one of his sons in the '30's?
Is there any way of finding out if someone returned to Italy and when? Was it unusual? I have 2 Ellis Island entry records for Pasquale.
If town of residence is not listed on a ship's manifest, is there any other way of finding it?
Does anyone know if Union Hill is a town or section of New York or New Jersey? I can't find it. Any info will be greatly appreciated
Just a comment on the census. It is very possible the person you are looking for is in the census, they are just "hidden". The name could have been written with terrible handwriting and thus indexed incorrectly. Or the person collecting the information could not understand your ancestor and wrote down incorrect information. Some census records are faded and hard to read. It can take some creative searching techiniques to find a family at times.
Sometimes it takes knowing where they lived and going page by page reading the families and you will find "yours". Then you will get a good laugh on how it is spelled or indexed.
It is also possible that their street or neighborhood was missed by a census taker.

Thanks for the info and thanks for that census citation. I tried all kinds of combinations of spellings but somehow missed that one. I searched again and I found another Briscione I was looking for, same misspelling, in a different town and county. Amazing.
How do I go about searching census records by street or page by page? Can it be done online? I have access to the Library version of Ancestry.com
Regarding town of birth information, I have not found that on any other records. Most merely say Italy. I am trying to find out if Gabriel Briscione is a relative of my Angelo. I will write to Contursi, but before I do, I want to have as much information as possible.
I can't tell you how much I appreciate all of the help I have been given, you all are wonderful.
Biff, you are incredible. I have been in touch with Gabriel's ggson and can't wait to share this information with him. His family all changed their first names, so I had one heck of a time figuring them out.
I still don't know the exact family relationship, but judging by the dates, Gabriel was probably my grandfather's uncle. Tony's ggmother might be his sister. I'm still digging through notes.
I could use a little help on these records from Castle Garden. I have searched by Ship and date but I can't find the manifests. I don't know what I am doing wrong. I even tried just by initials, but no luck.
