In search of my Grand-father Salvatore Cicolani

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.

In search of my Grand-father Salvatore Cicolani

Post by coccodrillo » 07 May 2006, 17:14

I'm trying to find clues about my grandfather's fate.
His name was Salvatore Cicolani, and he was married with Elvira, who remained in Italy.
He was born in Scoppito, a small village near the town of L'Aquila, located in Abruzzo, central Italy.
We know that he went to USA two times: the first one in 1906, while the second and last time was in 1909.
Since then, nobody hasn't got any news about him. He was believed (and I remark: BELIEVED) dead, but we never knew were he was dead or the circumstances of the death.
Surfing, we found two records about a man named Salvatore Cicolani (you can follow link to the page: ellis island records for Salvatore Cicolani), who arrived in US in 1906 and 1909.
We downloaded the ship manifests, but we weren't able to read writing of the immigration officer.
Should you think you can have clues to help my research, please reply to this post.

The writing is illegible. The only thing I was able to decipher:

On the 1906 records - he was staying with his brother-in-law, De Chir? Alberto at address Box 795.

On the 1909 records - There is mention of a Box 558 and someone named Maurizio. The man listed as Number 27 gave the same address, and I think there the P.O. Box was at Union Station.
