Post by dmt1955 » 24 Feb 2012, 21:47

although this is written in english, i am hoping someone might be able to decipher these two lines. the snippet is from a passenger manifest.
What i see:
Cousin Russo Lucia
??? River ?????
Sister. Lucia
??? ???(looks like Biscuit to me!) ?? ???

Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

Hi donna :-)

It would help much more if you would post the whole record, or even give us the location so we can pull it up! Helps to compare writing...

My guess at what you posted -
cousin Russo, Lucia
St/Wst(west?) River 36, Hyde Park, NY
and
sister, Lucia
St. ??? 36, Hyde
