Having difficulty finding any immigration records

Over 25 million Italians have emigrated between 1861 and 1960 with a migration boom between 1871 and 1915 when over 13,5 million emigrants left the country for European and overseas destinations.

Checking with an elderly aunt to see if the name Ragosta means anything, I never heard of it. On grandparents wedding certificate and census records there is no mention of previous marriages on either side. This is getting weirder by the minute.

Children's first names and ages correct per 1930 census.
Pasqua(lina)'s yob correct; maiden name almost exact.
Town correct.

Hey Biff :D !
Perhaps it's the correct Pasqualina and children. Maybe the Giuseppe Ragosta that they were traveling with was not related. The children could have been incorrectly listed with his surname...

I really don't know if this will help, but I remember my grandmother telling me that when she arrived she and the kids were detained at Ellis Island due to illness aboard the ship.

Thank you all so much for helping me, I have been looking for so long to find this record and you did it in no time. Thanks again. The Ragosta's were friends of the families. One more request, can you find my grandfathers entry into the US, he showed up year before she did by himself. I had no luck with that one either. Thank you again

Quick question please, does it mean that Pasqualina did not sail on the above mentioned ship? Sorry for the confusion.

This site gives an explanation of "crossed-out" passengers. (Scroll down to second section) :-)
