There are 9 Lapolla surnamed persons in Tursi. Go to www.paginebianche.it and insert surname in first line and Tursi in third line and click cerca for names,addresses and telephone numbers. If you know your grandfathers age at time of death or when he was born you can determine much. The www.ellisisland.org website reflects 3 Giuseppe Lapolla froim Tursi; the earliest being 1905 but since you say he came in the late 1800\'s then you may have to consider looking for another port of entry. Did he go directly to Niles??When did he die? Have you gone to the sociasl security index if he died after 1963 there are records to be had from their archives as well.Peterwell. Please advise what your research objectives are so that I can guide you to .Peter
I looked up the Ellis island entry for Giuseppe Lapolla entering in 1905 and the ships manifest shows he was destined to Ohio so that might be him. Go to that site www.elleisland.org and look him up. When you get to his name,click and then click ships manifest and enlargen the screen so you can read the manifest. he is number 13 in the ships maifest. He apparently came with a friedn from Tursi and was destined to a cousin in Ohio. Peter
