Mother's emigration.

Post by ajtwc » 21 Feb 2015, 14:05

I am looking for the manifest for the Rex which sailed from Naples in February 1940, arriving in New York on February 15, 1940. I believe this was the ship on which my mother, Amelia Martino, emigrated, along with her mother, Florinda and sister, Pauline. Can you help? Thank you.
